Quotations:
"I got stoned more often and went out to the beach at Bellows, overlooking Honolulu Harbor and the lights of the city, to drink with my buddies on Friday and Saturday nights, spending hours watching the planes take off and land at the airport, which is actually quite fascinating when you are drunk and stoned."

"I can envision a day when straight people say, 'So what if you're promoting homosexuality?' ... That is our mission from this day forward."

"You know, I hope you knew to use a condom." -To a 15 year-old high school boy who confided to Jennings that he had met an older man in a bus station bathroom and went home with him.

Sorry but Jennings's lawyer wrote a statement in 2004 saying that the young man was of legal age:

Yes, that's what the lawyer wrote. Funny, though, that Jennings himself didn't deny that the boy was only 15 when on Wednesday he said, "Twenty one years later I can see how I should have handled this situation differently. I should have asked for more information and consulted legal or medical authorities."

Whether he was 15 or 16 may make a legal difference in Massachusetts, but either way, Jennings is way outside the mainstream. His long history of gay activism may not be a concern for you; you may even consider that to be a positive thing for a man charged with making schools safe. However, for most people, his radical agenda of promoting homosexuality in schools is a concern.

Even putting Jennings' pro-gay agenda aside, appointing a man who has said that "watching the planes take off and land at the airport, ...is actually quite fascinating when you are drunk and stoned" to a position where one of his key responsibilities is to promote drug-free schools is questionable judgment on Obama's part.

At the very least, Jennings is yet another example of Obama's propensity to appointment far-left radicals to powerful positions in his administration.
