A debate on government affairs in Pennsylvania went off in a weird direction when a Republican state representative launched into a bizarre anti-gay attack on a colleague after being touched on the arm.
According to the Inquirer, Chairman of the Pennsylvania House State Government Committee Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R) interrupted Democratic Chairman Matt Bradford, after Bradford touched his arm while making a on point on land use issues.
“Representative Bradford,” said Metcalfe, cutting off Bradford. “Look, I’m a heterosexual. I have a wife, I love my wife. I don’t like men, as you might. But stop touching me all the time.”
“It’s like keep your hands to yourself,” he added as a startled Bradford looked on and began laughing. “Like, if you want to touch somebody, you have people on your side of the aisle that might like it. I don’t.”
“We are officially off the rails,” Bradford said with a smirk to the assembled panel before telling a stone-faced Metcalfe, “My intent was just to beg for your permission for about 30 seconds.”
“Then beg, don’t touch,” Metcalfe shot back.
“I don’t know where we go from here,” Bradford replied as laughter filled the room.

A dive into the ‘deadliest wave of the opioid epidemic’ is the most frightening book of the year — and mandatory reading
First a spoiler alert: Among the multiple apocalyptic revelations in Ben Westhoff’s Fentanyl, Inc.: How Rogue Chemists Are Creating the Deadliest Wave of the Opioid Epidemic is sour news for all hard drug users, from casual weekend abusers to full-time cocaine cowboys. In light of developments presented in this epic book in gruesome and unprecedented fashion, putting questionable substances up your nose, in your veins, or even on your tongue is highly discouraged from here on in.
“Any drug where it’s a powder or a pill, you just can’t trust it,” Westhoff said in an interview about his latest project. “There can be fentanyl in anything … [Home drug-testing kits] are getting very sophisticated, and there are websites you can consult, but in terms of going to a party and someone offering you some blow or something like that, it’s over.”
