High Quality Burning Man Video  »  Ron's Log
Professional photographer, professional DJ, so it looks and sounds good. Maybe it's skewed a little in favor of the young and pretty, but if that offends you, just look away. Watch for the Mac Mini! ...

Bystanders Intervene To Stop Bashing  »  Ron's Log
It's not often...maybe it's more accurate to say never before have we seen a good clear video of an entire gaybashing from beginning to end, but here it is. If you stay to the end of the video it morphs into something else and you get to see a prize winning beard. This is DFW: You can see that the main reason this is all recorded was that the drunk guy telegraphed his intentions so far in advance that our videographer was able to set up a good shot. Hell, there was enough time to call Hollywood and get ...

Ted Olson Still Aiming High  »  Ron's Log
Ted Olson acknowledges that the point of no return has been passed on the issue of marriage equality. He does not, however, agree with President Obama that this incremental approach is acceptable. There are still 18 states that abridge the rights of their citizens...which, I irrelevantly point out, is more states than were in the Confederacy, but this is fine with Obama. Olson wants the damn Supremes to take one damn case and make a damn clear decision, damn it. [Note: Olson never said "damn."] ...

Just In Time To Make Some Money  »  Ron's Log
A Colorado company has announced a consumer test kit that they say can detect marijuana in food. Here's the website of Personal Analytics, the company that is selling this kit. There is nothing in either the news article or on the company website to suggest this kit has been tested by any neutral third party. I'd like to see an opinion from a law enforcement agency after they test it. So if you want to market an untested product like this, you publicize it just a few days before Halloween when there is no time for parents to ...

Drawing The Lines  »  Ron's Log
It's official. Westboro Baptist Church has petitioned the court to allow them to intervene as a defendant in the attempt to preserve marriage inequality in Kansas. I wonder if they would conduct their defense by holding up brightly colored signs with offensive slogans on them. Part of their position is that the Kansas Attorney General cannot use religion in a defense of the state's laws, but the Westboro Baptist Church can and intends to do so. I would certainly welcome such an entertaining effort that would make the differences between the two sides extremely clear. Meanwhile, over in Washington, ...

European Space Agency  »  Ron's Log
The publicity directors at ESA are given greater freedom to run with their imaginations than those directors at NASA (and when you see the credits at the end, you may understand why NASA is a bit more conservative - did all of those people get paid?!): A close up of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko shot from a point 9.8 km from the center of the comet. ...

DHS Public Safety Commission - 10/9/2014  »  Ron's Log
Commissioner Eastman was absent from this meeting of the Public Safety Commission. Public Comment Michael Picardi came to the podium and Chair Bowman reminded him of the three-minute time limit. Commissioner Lavy interrupted to say that was incorrect, that at the last meeting of the Commission the attorney had advised the three-minute limit was not a restringent on the commission. Here is 54954.3(b): "The legislative body of a local agency may adopt reasonable regulations to ensure that the intent of subdivision (a) is carried out, including, but not limited to, regulations limiting the total amount of time allocated for public testimony ...

Motorcyclists Using GoPros To Launch Their Legal Troubles  »  Ron's Log
The video from the motorcyclist's point of view. This is on 680 in Milpitas. The light is not favorable for reading license plates, but it's my understanding that there are some people in California who know how to enhance video. News story here. ...

Harry Shearer as Nixon  »  Ron's Log
Harry "Excellent!" Shearer will be Richard Nixon in Nixon's The One, a six-part series that will debut on Youtube Tuesday, October 28. Sparked by working on the Nixon series, one has to confront a fairly blunt fact: Forgetting his foreign policy, which was ludicrous, a lot of his domestic policies were mind-spinningly to the left of Obama. Under Nixon, the EPA was started, the OSHA was started, the Clean Air Act was passed, the Clean Water Act was passed. And, most startlingly of all, Nixon gave a speech late in his truncated second term calling ...
