This is very cool :)
Revelations about Pluto and its moon Charon are coming thick and fast as New Horizons approaches the pair. Unexpected color differences, strange spots and signs of an atmosphere have all been observed. However, not everything we have learned comes from the spacecraft – observations made in rather unlikely places are proving useful as well. One recent discovery is obvious from the image above; Pluto and Charon are very different colors.

Have you seen the ridiculously bigoted anti-gay ads created by the Catholic Group? (I just posed it)

Well, here is a better version! "Make less progress- and yet still pretend like we are the ones being attacked"

In 1867, Russia sold Alaska to the United States because it could neither govern nor defend it. Today’s Russia must act soon to prevent a similar scenario on its eastern flank.
Contemporary analysis of Russian foreign policy understandably focuses on Ukraine and the Caucasus, but real drama is unfolding much farther east. Having lost its European empire in the twentieth century, Russia may find that its biggest threat in the twenty-first is that of the loss of its Asian empire.

NYTimes: Louisiana Prosecutor Becomes Blunt Spokesman for Death Penalty


He is, if anything, a reason why the death penalty should be history.
Why a convicted murderer in Caddo Parish may be far more likely to be sentenced to death than a killer in another part of the country.

"You can always count on bigots to take widespread social issues like homophobia and reframe it to say that THEY’RE the ones being discriminated against. A ridiculous video recently created by conservative nonprofit Catholic Vote is no different, and it serves as a 'coming out' of all religious homophobes."

While old, it sadly still resonates.
by Albert Einstein I am writing as one who has lived among you in America only a little more than ten years. And I am writing seriously and warningly. Many readers may ask: "What right has he to speak about things which concern us alone, and which no newcomer should touch?"

African-Americans hold only about 5 percent of the offices, and two-thirds of the states that elect prosecutors have none at all, according the Women Donors Network.

Story
Tagline
Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
