To me, the ruling by the Supreme Court on gay marriage is about more than marriage, it’s about recognizing gay people as real people with the same rights as other people. And it happened in the same week when people are pushing to get the Confederate Flag removed from state buildings and other public places. It was just not a good week for bigots. Anyone care to guess how many millions they will spend in the next few years to try and make progress go away?
Bristol Palin has proudly announced that she, being totally heterosexual, is pregnant again. And she thinks she knows who the father is!
A lot of people are writing about Twitter and what to do about it’s fading away. I haven’t heard any of them say why most older people, especially writers and those with an education, don’t like Twitter. It’s because of their strongly encouraging people to speak in gibberish with no punctuation because it take up those very limited spaces allowed. It’s curios that when the average novel length is over 400 pages, the Twits are insisting on one line communication “cuz we all need to get dumber and dumber,” right?
I have to laugh at this one. Scientists trying to study sea stars (erroneously called starfish) have been finding it difficult. It seems that if you insert one of those tiny tracking chips into one of the critters, within a day or two its body pushes it out and discards it. Apparently, they don’t like to be spied on.
So after just about everyone shared the story about a rat in a bucket of KFC chicken and commented on the horror of it all, it turns out it was just an odd shaped piece of chicken that someone thought resembled a rat and then the brilliance of the internet took over.
“When we transcend ourselves and become in our ascent toward God so simple that the bare supreme Love can lay hold of us, then we cease, and we and all our selfhood die in God. And in his death we become the hidden children of God, and find a new life within us.” ~Jan van Ruysbroeck
