Cleveland  »  Ron's Log
The L.A. Times:A slew of officers refused to testify at the trial, and others who had been subpoenaed refused to even meet with prosecutors to go over their testimony. Cuyahoga County prosecutor Timothy McGinty accused the union of attempting to insulate [Officer Michael] Brelo from prosecution, comparing their actions to those of an "organized crime syndicate." But everybody knows the Cuyahoga County prosecutor is a leftist who watches too many movies. ...

Ireland Votes In Marriage Equality With 62% Majority  »  Ron's Log
60.5% of the electorate turned out (as if to make the U.S. look even worse). In that single red constituency the vote was 48.6% to 51.4%. If the Roman Catholic church had any sense they would consider this a significant warning. So I think it's safe to assume the Catholic church will just pour more money into their losing battle. They seem to have plenty to waste. Ireland is the first country in the world to approve marriage equality in a national vote of the people. Given the necessary time to approve the enabling legislation means the first ...

Pick Up An Extra K  »  Ron's Log
Be prepared for the day when your neighbor tries to impress you with his 4K television or computer display. Get the new 5K iMac. Starts at only $1,999. But with that extra K, I'm sure you'll be wanting to pack on some additional GHz, am I right? An extra two-tenths of a GHz will cost you only $300, which comes out to only $1,500/GHz. Not bad at all when you consider that our parents and grandparents made it through life with only Hz, KHz, and MHz. How did they do it? Herr Hertz, ...

CCAC Advances DHS Welcome Sign  »  Ron's Log
In today's meeting, the Community and Cultural Affairs Commission voted to place the first new entry sign at 18th and Palm, shown above. There is no electricity at that spot, as far as I can determine, but the CCAC will be looking into solar power for the lighting. The new sign will be a rock with engraved lettering, not another one of those little green signs. The CCAC has a special meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 28, 8:30 AM at Low Desert Rock Supply, 65005 Dillon Rd, Desert Hot Springs where entry signs will again be the agenda item. ...
