The Frinklin House Rules

As readers of the Mrs. Frinklin’s blog are aware, we have few rules in our marriage. Oh, the usual man/wife rules apply. For instance, it’s always my job to get Hershey Kisses whenever she needs them. We also have a couple very special rules, which the Mrs. has spelled out here (the No-Murder rule) and here (the No Eating People at the Reception Rule). I am okay and in fact agree wholeheartedly with these additional rules. Well, the Mrs. Frinklin added a new one this morning. It’s the No Having Gay Sex at Work rule. Apparently there are now special restrictions on exactly whom I can start an affair with. There currently is no No Having Straight Sex at Work rule, so we may have to discuss that as well.

Obviously, this stems from the oddball Governor McGreevey of New Jersey affair. For those paying no attention at all, the Gov came out of the closet yesterday. It seems that he was having a homosexual affair with an employee of the state, had to transfer said employee, and after attempting to blackmail the Governor, he then filed a sexual harassment suit. Now, the reason for transferring seems pretty cut and dry. Initially the Gov named this guy New Jersey’s Secretary of Homeland Defense. Unfortunately, due to his Israeli citizenship, he did not qualify for the clearance needed. Therefore, they transferred him. Why this qualifies as sexual harassment is beyond me. Anyway, the Gov’s press conference announcing this was a thing of beauty. I especially loved his wife, with her frozen mixture of horror and pride on her face. You also have to love that he made sure we knew he was a “Gay American” as if coming out of the closet could also turn you Portuguese or Indonesian.

I had the same exact thought: "Gay American? As opposed to being a gay Pakistani?"
