Illinois Government  »  Ron's Log
Under the laws of the State of Illinois, one medical marijuana cultivation site can be permitted in "District 11" (you can see a map of those districts here) which covers 5 counties and includes East St. Louis. A business calling itself Progressive Treatment Solutions submitted an application for such a cultivation site to the Illinois Department of Agriculture. Now, the City Council of East St. Louis wants to approve the zoning for that cultivation facility without letting the public know where it will be. The linked article explains the positions and attitudes of all parties, but ...

Not Missing It  »  Ron's Log
Boston Virtual Imaging sent someone out with a drone and a camera to document the snow in Boston. They made a tour of some of the major tourist highlights in central Boston: In order of appearance:
  • Charlestown (Bunker Hill)
  • Public Garden
  • Boston Common/Beacon Hill
  • Commonwealth Avenue/Back Bay
  • Fenway Park
  • Beacon Hill or maybe Charlestown again - hard to tell when you're up that close, although the unusual house one sees on the left will identify it for someone who knows Boston better than I - but I'm betting heavily on Beacon Hill
  • Charles River/The Esplanade (Hatch Shell)
  • Waterfront/Harbor Hotel/that thing that used to be an elevated highway

This came across my Facebook stream just now… What is doubly so dehumanizing about “people who look like that want people who look like that”: it not only denies the humanity of the person you are calling ugly, it is denying that humanity to the person you think is more beautiful than they are. But […] ...

Maggie Gallagher's new gig  »  Good As You
Maggie, the personality probably most (and forever) associated with marriage inequality in this country, is now editing a political site with its eye on 2016 [Pulse2016] This "Pulse 2016" site is a project of the American Principles Project, which is essentially a spinoff of NOM. APP was founded by Maggie's NOM cofounder, Robert George, and in addition to Maggie, it includes a number of NOM's behind-the-scenes players, like Luis Tellez and Sean Fieler, on its board. This being the case, let me be the first to wish Maggie and her pals continued "success." Who knows what major rights and benefits they ...

How do you even talk with a movement that insists we 'cannot coexist'?  »  Good As You
The Alliance Defending Freedom, the pro-discrimination legal group at the forefront of most cases wherein an anti-gay–minded person cites his or her "religious freedom" as valid reason to ignore fairly enacted nondiscrimination polices that apply to LGBT people, has written yet another post on sexual orientation/gender identity (SOGI) laws. ADF sums up its position in the headline: [ADF] The "cannot coexist" line is used twice more in the post and its attached video. There is no discussion to be had; ADF simply insists that "SOGI laws threaten individuals and business-owners, both for-profit and nonprofit, who want to live and work ...

La polizia russa organizza un raid nel locale di una delel due donne che si era baciata davanti a Vitaly Milonov  »  Gayburg
Dopo le minacce , pare che il senatore Vitaly Milonov sia passato ai fatti nel vendicarsi contro le due lesbiche che viaggiavano sul suo steso aereo e che avevano osato baciarsi dinnanzi a lui. La fotografia divenne subito virale in rete e quella popolarità ha fatto infuriare ulteriormente l'uomo, noto per aver le sue campagne d'odio contro i gay e per aver ideato l'orrida legge contro la cosiddetta «propaganda omosessuale» di San Pietroburgo. Nonostante non ci sia l'evidenza di un collegamento diretto con il politico omofobo, il caso vuole... [leggi tutto] ...

OMG, it's Igor's Look Of The Week: The weasel that decided to take a ride on the back of woodpecker!  »  !! omg blog !!
Disney execs are wet with joy after seeing these images of a weasel riding on a woodpecker pop us this week. Yes -- a real photo, taken by photographer Martin Le-May in a park in East London. More on the dynamic duo via Slate: The photographer, Martin Le-May, told me it began when he heard distress calls from the bird, a European green woodpecker, and turned to see it jumping up and down on the ground. These woodpeckers commonly feed on ground-dwelling ants, and the weasel must have initiated a sneak attack. Birds do what birds do, however, ...

QUEER QUOTE: CA Proposed Ballot Measure Would Authorize Death Penalty For "Sodomites"  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Wow. Now this is some pretty crazy stuff, even for heterosexual supremacists. A religious zealot has filed a proposed ballot measure called the "Sodomite Suppression Act" with the Attorney General of California that says "any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purpose of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or any other convenient method."Matt McLaughlin filed the measure and paid the $200 fee required to get the ballot measure in the system. He then has to collect the signatures of 5% of the votes cast for Governor ...

The Only Way To End HIV  »  Unicorn Booty Gay Blog
A sign outside of a Botswana junior high school (via Samantha Marx) It’s hard to see a possible endpoint for the HIV epidemic — it continues spreading each day. In 2010 (the last available year with a complete data set), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported an estimated 47,500 new infections in America. About two-thirds of those were in gay and bisexual men, with about 11,000 among white males and 10,000 among black ones. About one in six people living with HIV don’t know they have it, leading the disease to spread further. And the number of ...
