ITN: Ruben Diaz irony alert, no bail in Sandy murder, a sports star comes out

And as long as we are having a case of blogorrhea today, elsewhere in the news:

The homophobic New York State Senator (and Reverend) Ruben Diaz, Sr., has some love to spare for
one particular lesbian (hat tip to Azi at The Politicker)

On Thursday, Gay City News reported that the family of Anthony Fortunato, one of the men accused of murdering Michael J. Sandy last October, was ready to post a $1.3 million bond if Fortunato was allowed to walk free on bail. This morning, after hearing arguments in favor and against setting bail for Fortunato, a Brooklyn judge decided against it.

And, if you haven't heard yet, John Amaechi (above) - a former NBA star who played for Penn State during his college years and then went on to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic and the Utah Jazz, will appear on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" this Sunday to discuss his new book, "Man in the Middle" and to announce that he is gay. He becomes the first NBA player to do so. A preview over at the ESPN site.
