Is your constant mention of women and girlfriends an elaborate cover?
I dare anyone to go back through this guys posts (pictures) and not guess he's gay.

Do you have an issue with gay folks?

Incidentally, you are mistaken if you think Todd Rundgren is gay.

Quote
Rundgren has three sons; Rex (born 1980) and Randy (born 1985) with his first wife Karen Darvin, and Rebop with current wife Michele. Rex is a minor league baseball player (Infield position), who, as of 2012, plays for the Tulsa (Oklahoma) Drillers.

Actress Liv Tyler was born July 1, 1977 and originally used Rundgren as a last name. According to Tyler "...Todd basically decided when I was born that I needed a father so he signed my birth certificate. He knew that there was a chance that I might not be his but…" He paid to put her through private school, and she visited him several times a year. Rundgren had a five-year relationship with Tyler's mother Bebe Buell which ended shortly after Liv's birth. At age nine, Liv Tyler was informed by Buell she was Steven Tyler's biological daughter.

Tyler maintains a close relationship with Rundgren "I’m so grateful to him, I have so much love for him. You know, when he holds me it feels like Daddy. And he’s very protective and strong."

In 1998 Rundgren married Michele Gray (Michele Rundgren), who had been a dancer with The Tubes, performed with Rundgren as a backup singer on the tour for his Nearly Human album which led to a number of appearances on the David Letterman Show as one of The World's Most Dangerous Backup Singers.

"Man’s flesh is delicious. It tastes far better than fish or pork."

Alexander Pearce was an Irish convict who was transported to Van Diemen’s Land for seven years for theft. He escaped from prison several times, but was eventually captured and was hanged and dissected in Hobart for murder.

Pearce led an escape from Macquarie Harbour Penal Settlement and became notorious for cannibalizing his fellow escapees as they traversed the West Coast of Tasmania.

Pearce escaped with seven other men. About 15 days into the journey, the men were starving and drew lots to see who would be killed for food. Three of the men decamped and one died of exhaustion, and two were killed.  After that, it was a cat and mouse game between Pearce and Greenhill. Greenhill had  the axe, but they were both starving, and they had to sleep. In the end it was Pearce who prevailed. He grabbed the axe, killed Greenhill and dined on his body. He later raided an Aboriginal campsite and stole more food. When he saw sheep, he knew he had reached the settled districts. He was lucky again, as the shepherd who came upon him eating a lamb was an old friend. Pearce was inducted into a sheep stealing ring, and was eventually picked up with William Davis and Ralph Churton, who were both hanged for bush ranging and escaping from a military escort.

In total, Pearce had been free for 113 days, a little less than half of which was spent in the wilderness. Locked up in Hobart, Pearce made a confession to the Rev. Robert Knopwood, the magistrate and chaplain. However, Knopwood did not believe the cannibalism story and was convinced the others were still living as bushrangers. He sent Pearce back to Macquarie Harbour.

Within a year, Pearce escaped a second time, joined by a young convict named Thomas Cox. Pearce was captured within ten days and taken to the Supreme Court of Van Diemen’s Land in Hobart, where he was tried and convicted of murdering and cannibalizing Thomas Cox. Observers noted Pearce did not look like a cannibal. He was only 1.6m (5 feet 2 inches) in height, which was under average for that time, but had a strong wiry frame. He did not seem to be someone who was “laden with the weight of human blood, and believed to have banqueted on human flesh" as the Hobart Town Gazette wrote on 25 June 1824. His captors had found parts of Cox’s body in Pearce’s pockets, even though he still had food left, and his guilt was beyond doubt this time. Pearce confessed he had killed Cox because when they reached King’s River, he discovered that Cox could not swim. Pearce was the first felon to be executed by the new Supreme Court and the first confessed cannibal to pass through the Tasmanian court system.

Punt guns were used for duck hunting at the turn of the last century. A single shot could kill up to 50 waterfowl resting on the surface of a pond or lake. ca 1900.

Today in History: June 28, 1950 –  During the Korean War South Korean military and police summarily executed at least 100,000 suspected North Korean sympathizers in an event known as the Bodo League Massacre

The Bodo League massacre was a massacre and war crime against communists and suspected sympathizers that occurred in the summer of 1950 during the Korean War.

In 1950, just before the outbreak of the Korean War, the first president of South Korea, Syngman Rhee, had about 30,000 alleged communists imprisoned and about 300,000 suspected sympathizers or his political opponents enrolled in an official “re-education" movement known as the Bodo League on the pretext of protecting them from execution.

On June 25,1950, the Korean War began when Kim Il-Sung’s communist army attacked from the North.  According to Kim Mansik, who was a military police superior officer, President Syngman Rhee ordered the execution of people related to either the Bodo League or the South Korean Workers Party two days later.

The first massacre was started one day later in Hoengseong, Gangwon-do on June 28th. Retreating South Korean forces and anti communist groups executed the alleged-communist prisoners, along with many of the Bodo League members.

Today in History: June, 28 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand is Assassinated

Today at approximately 10:45 a.m. Franz Ferdinand and his wife were killed in Sarajevo by Gavrilo Princip, 19 at the time, a member of Young Bosnia and one of a group of assassins organized by the Black Hand. The event led to a chain of events that eventually triggered World War I.

The couple had previously been attacked when a grenade was thrown at their car. Ferdinand deflected the grenade and it detonated far behind them. He is known to have shouted in anger to local officials:

    "So you welcome your guests with bombs?!"

The royal couple insisted on seeing all those injured at the hospital. After travelling there, Franz and Sophie decided to go to the palace, but their driver took a wrong turn onto a side street, where Princip spotted them. As the car was backing up, Princip approached and shot Sophie in the abdomen and Franz Ferdinand in the jugular vein. He was still alive when witnesses arrived to render aid. His dying words to Sophie were, ‘Don’t die darling, live for our children.’

The archduke’s aides attempted to undo his coat but realized they needed scissors to cut it open. It was too late; he died within minutes.

A detailed account of the shooting can be found in Sarajevo by Joachim Remak:

    One bullet pierced Franz Ferdinand’s neck while the other pierced Sophie’s abdomen. … As the car was reversing (to go back to the Governor’s residence because the entourage thought the Imperial couple were unhurt) a thin streak of blood shot from the Archduke’s mouth onto Count Harrach’s right cheek (he was standing on the car’s running board). Harrach drew out a handkerchief to still the gushing blood. The Duchess, seeing this, called: “For Heaven’s sake! What happened to you?" and sank from her seat, her face falling between her husband’s knees.

    Harrach and Potoriek … thought she had fainted … only her husband seemed to have an instinct for what was happening. Turning to his wife despite the bullet in his neck, Franz Ferdinand pleaded: “Sopherl! Sopherl! Sterbe nicht! Bleibe am Leben für unsere Kinder! - Sophie dear! Don’t die! Stay alive for our children!" Having said this, he seemed to sag down himself. His plumed hat … fell off; many of its green feathers were found all over the car floor. Count Harrach seized the Archduke by the uniform collar to hold him up. He asked “Leiden Eure Kaiserliche Hoheit sehr? - Is Your Imperial Highness suffering very badly?" “Es ist nichts - It is nothing" said the Archduke in a weak but audible voice. He seemed to be losing consciousness during his last few minutes, but, his voice growing steadily weaker, he repeated the phrase perhaps six or seven times more.

The assassinations, along with the arms race, nationalism, imperialism, militarism, and the alliance system all contributed to the origins of World War I, which began a month after Franz Ferdinand’s death, with Austria-Hungary’s declaration of war against Serbia.

The assassination of Ferdinand is considered the most immediate cause of World War I.

Today in History: June, 28, 1969, The Stonewall Riots

The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the LGBTQ community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBTQ  rights in the United States

Although the police were legally justified in raiding the club, which was serving liquor without a license among other violations, New York’s LGBTQ community had grown weary of the police department targeting gay clubs, a majority of which had already been closed. The crowd on the street watched quietly as Stonewall’s employees were arrested, but when three drag queens and a lesbian were forced into the paddy wagon, the crowd began throwing bottles at the police. The officers were forced to take shelter inside the establishment, and two policemen were slightly injured before reinforcements arrived to disperse the mob. The protest, however, spilled over into the neighboring streets, and order was not restored until the deployment of New York’s riot police.

Very few establishments welcomed openly gay people in the 1950s and 1960s. Those that did were often bars, although bar owners and managers were rarely gay. The Stonewall Inn, at the time, was owned by the Mafia. It catered to an assortment of patrons, but it was known to be popular with the poorest and most marginalized people in the LGBTQ  community: drag queens, representatives of a newly self-aware transgender community, effeminate young men, male prostitutes, and homeless youth. Police raids on gay bars were routine in the 1960s, but officers quickly lost control of the situation at the Stonewall Inn, and attracted a crowd that was incited to riot. Tensions between New York City police and gay residents of Greenwich Village erupted into more protests the next evening, and again several nights later. Within weeks, Village residents quickly organized into activist groups to concentrate efforts on establishing places for gays and lesbians to be open about their sexual orientation without fear of being arrested.

After the Stonewall riots, gays and lesbians in New York City faced gender, race, class, and generational obstacles to becoming a cohesive community. Within six months, two gay activist organizations were formed in New York, concentrating on confrontational tactics, and three newspapers were established to promote rights for gays and lesbians. Within a few years, gay rights organizations were founded across the U.S. and the world. On June 28, 1970, the first Gay Pride marches took place in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York commemorating the anniversary of the riots. Similar marches were organized in other cities.

Paul Overby, one of two drivers trapped in the cab of a truck, is pulled to safety by a rope on the Pit River Bridge, over Shasta Lake, California on 3 May 1953. Overby and co-driver Hank Baum were rescued moments before the cab crashed and burned the rocks below. Virginia Schau was on fishing trip when she saw the accident, she grabbed her camera as her husband and another motorist rescued the drivers. Schau’s photo won the $10 prize in the Sacramento Bee’s weekly photo contest as well as making her the first woman and second amateur to win the Pulitzer prize for photography

On 22 June 1937, in Chicago’s Comiskey Park, Joe Louis became world heavyweight champion by defeating James J Braddock, known as Cinderella Man. Louis was the first African American champion since Jack Johnson in 1915. He subsequently went on to hold the title for twelve years, defending his title twenty five times
