SATURDAY POLITICS: Poll Shows Marriage Equality Support Above 60%  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
A new poll from ABC News/Washington Post indicates that support for marriage equality is at an all-time high just as the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case (Obergefell v. Hodges) that could strike down the remaining state marriage bans next week. There are 37 states that have marriage equality right now, and the latest poll says that 61% of all respondents support marriage equality with only 35% in opposition. More interesting is the fact that intensity of support is with the proponents of marriage equality (40% strongly support marriage equality as ...

What IS Burning Man  »  Ron's Log
Oh, we keep asking that and giving and getting the non-answer, like "It is like trying to describe the experience of listening to music, while watching an experimental film that is about making a film about making a film about making art, while getting your painfully sunburned back rubbed with coconut oil." And all that has to be explained to someone who is blind and deaf. Devon takes his turn at the answer. Experiencing a city built on creativity, built on self-expression, built on participation, does something to the participator. It allows a freedom not often nurtured elsewhere in the ...

Those Swedish Cops  »  Ron's Log
The ones who subdued the violent man on the NYC subway a couple days ago, those Swedish cops. If you have watched more than one or two videos of cops taking down an offender, then it may strike you that one thing these Swedes don't say in this video is "Stop resisting." This, even when the restrained man tried that old "I can't breathe" line. You're not supposed to be able to scream that line. You've got to work in one or two gasps for air and let your voice dwindle away at the end. ...

Catching Up with My Books  »  A Life in the Day
I've been avoiding my blog the past few weeks, waffling about whether or not to keep it going. After a little more than 12 years, I sense that it's overstayed its welcome...like M*A*S*H, in a way. I could list the reasons, but that would be tantamount to begging for comments, which I don't want to do. In the meantime, I have caught up on my reading—13 books so far this year. Before I store them in the dark attic of my memory, the following one or two sentences about each and a star rating seems to be in order. Feed ...

No Shit, Sherlock  »  Ron's Log
The Oklahoma Geological Survey, a government agency, has announced that it "considers it very likely that the majority of recent earthquakes, particularly those in central and north-central Oklahoma, are triggered by the injection of produced water in disposal wells." IOW, fracking. But it's not fracking alone that does it, or North Dakota would be experiencing the same huge leap in earthquake activity. "These earthquakes swarms are occurring over a large area, about 15% of the area of Oklahoma, that has experienced significant increase in wastewater disposal volumes over the last several years." "Most of the earthquakes in Oklahoma are occurring ...

City Council Meeting On April 28  »  Ron's Log
The Desert Hot Springs City Council is holding a special meeting on this coming Tuesday, April 28. The only item on the agenda is to consider a resolution that will allow proposed, but not yet approved, dispensaries to change their proposed locations. The resolution, as written, would also permit those not yet approved dispensaries to request their proposals be considered by the City Manager and the Planning Commission. It's not clear to me what the Planning Commission would do. Would they actually go so far as to approve a CUP but hold it in abeyance until the City ...

Game Over  »  A Life in the Day
I can cross another video game off my "must play" list: Thief from Square Enix and Eidos Studios. In this game, you play as Garrett, a master thief who must stop the Baron's Watch from potentially destroying The City. And as you make your way through the various districts of The City, you break into homes, steal trinkets and jewelry, collect plaques for city landmarks or expand your collection of paintings, and light these bizarre candles that appear throughout the game. I admit to being skeptical at first. The game play uses first person, and the atmosphere ...

Haters Propose Initiative To Regulate Where Gender Non-Conforming People Can Pee  »  The Mad Professah Lectures
Now that heterosexual supremacists and religious fundamentalists have realized they have lost the culture war completely on the question of marriage equality they are moving on to other issues, like "religious freedom" and protecting people who believe they have a constitutional right to deny services and public accommodations to other people due to their "sincerely held beliefs" about marriage. Oh and proposing ballot measures to require executions of homosexuals.One of these issues the homophobic conservative right is pivoting to is about gender-nonconforming people and bathrooms. You think LGBT people are interested in the ...
