Dear Dan: This is going to sound like bragging, but my appearance is intrinsic to my kink. I’m a gay male gymnast. Most of the guys on my college team are annoyed by the kind of objectification we routinely come in for. (We actually don’t want to be auctioned off at yet another sorority fundraiser, thanks.

Oregon’s legalization process begins

By Leland Rucker
On Wednesday, Measure 91, the first part of the ballot initiative approved by 56 percent of Oregon voters in November, officially took effect. The state, which, in 1998 became the second to pass a medical marijuana statute, joins Colorado, Washington and Alaska (whose law went into effect in February) in decriminalizing adult possession of marijuana.

Next, Buck got photographed holding a Red, White and Blue AR-15 assault rifle that he actually, not kidding, keeps above a copy of the Second Amendment in his congressional office. He then tried to turn the fact that his irresponsible behavior with his gun caused an investigation.

Both are quite worthy of your attention and intelligence. To succeed at either would fuel your emotional growth for months to come. You probably can’t do them both, however. So which will it be: Will you purge the illusion or put it to work for you?.

Mastering the craft

A trip to City Star Brewing

By Tiffany Lutke
As I pulled up to City Star Brewing, under heavy clouds and light rain on an early Friday morning, people were out hanging their flags, running their errands and opening the many small businesses that line the center of town. This town’s pride and character persisted as I entered the brewery.

Big Food’s profit process

How the top food producers influence nutrition research

By Ari LeVaux
According to a new report, many scientific studies about nutrition, as well as the trusted experts who disseminate this information to the public, are being funded by the very entities that should be scrutinized. The report, “Nutrition Scientists on the Take from Big Food,” details the ways that the world’s largest food corporations (aka “Big Food”) exert their influence on nutrition research and the people who conduct it. The report’s author, attorney and food advocate Michele Simon, has previously studied the influence of Big Food on the nation’s largest organization of Registered Dietitians (RD). Together, these reports paint a disturbing picture of how food corporations collude to manipulate how information on nutrition is researched and disseminated. The coyote isn’t just guarding the chicken coop here; it built the thing, and is holding onto the key.

A special place

Prime rib night at the Niwot Tavern

By Matt Cortina
It’s prime rib night at the tavern. There’s a happy murmur in the dining room, likely because it’s the kind of place where you can get a fat prime rib and baked potato for ten bucks on a Monday night. The prime rib special is about community. I have driven into the night on some interstate countless times, headed for some easy weekend retreat, and popped into an Al’s or a Roadside or a Moonlight, finding a cheerful community, switching booths, chatting up neighbors and laughing at playful waitress sass.

[Ir]replaceable you

Three faces in the ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’

By Michael J. Casey
The cinema is unkind to actresses of a certain age, replacing them with younger, newer models, forcing them from the spotlight to make way for tomorrow. That is not something Maria (Juliette Binoche), a renowned actress of the stage and screen, is ready to do.

Mainline it

Dope will get you high

By Ryan Syrek
When the stunning Nakia (ZoŽ Kravitz) invites Malcolm to a birthday party for her on-again/off-again, dopeslinging boyfriend, Dom (A$ap Rocky), the nerdy good kids find themselves wading hip deep into shit creek.
