    A Cincinnati man is suing LA Fitness after he said operators of the gym in Oakley told him he was not allowed to pray in the locker room after his workout. Western Hills High School alumnus Mohamed Fall is a practicing Muslim and a former college basketball star who has used the LA Fitness facility on Marburg Avenue since 2013, according to his lawsuit filed in federal court Monday. Fall claimed in his suit that he was accosted by three LA Fitness employees while he was engaged in quiet prayer in an “empty obscure corner” of an “at the time...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – While getting to the gym can be a challenge in itself this winter, members of the LA Fitness in Roseville have had more serious problems to deal with. On Sunday, city police responded to a call involving 10-15 people fighting at the gym’s Cleveland Avenue location. It started all on the basketball court over a call and escalated, moving into the main fitness area. “People were actually throwing two and a half, five, 10 pound weights within the building,” said Police Lt. Lorne Rosand. This recent fight is just part of a bigger problem. Police say the...

    Fox News off and then on again at Escondido gym Fitness devotee Dianne Lowe's best exercise in recent days may be standing up for what she says is free speech. The five-year member of the LA Fitness club on El Norte Parkway in Escondido was outraged last week when she went to turn on the right-leaning cable channel while working out and found it wouldn't come in. Lowe talked to a gym attendant, who she said told her that LA Fitness officials had ordered it shut down. "They told me, 'We are not allowed to turn on Fox News,' and...

    I had heard that this had happened, but before yesterday, my location in Cypress, Texas hadn't implemented it. Yesterday, I walked in and got onto an elliptical and saw CNN in place of Fox News and next to it a show on Bravo where I was treated to two men making out!! I was glad the two 15 year old girls down the row were able to witness it. I asked the sales guys and was told it was "corporate". I may be at another gym soon. Does anyone here have any more info on why they are doing this?

    Submitter's Note: I have confirmed with LA Fitness' corporate headquarters; all members are prohibited from carrying guns. So the scene of this massacre was a classic FSA "safe haven from guns", which made it a ripe target for a twisted sicko.

    Woo hoo! I've made the big time. Last month, the website Free Republic featured a thread about my Nov. 18 column, "Queers Who Don't Act Right." You probably don't know much about Free Republic unless you are a right-wing lunatic. Free Republic is so far right that wing-nut gay muckraker Matt Drudge and Lucianne Goldberg, one of the architects of the Clinton-Monica Lewinsky brouhaha, both left the site in 1999 because it was too extreme, even for them. In the years since, the site has become the contemporary version of a marathon meeting of the old John Birch Society and...
