My father, Tom Lovett, passed away this week. What he did for a living is not really that important, other than he worked very hard to provide for his family. What he did as a person IS important.

He was decent man who led a good life and was kind to all he knew and fiercely loyal to those he loved.

I was lucky to have his as a father and honored to call him my friend. This photo is how I choose to remember him.  In the sun, surrounded by his entire family, making us laugh.  

No one really dies as long as they are remembered. His life will echo on.

We had a couple of baby hawks visit us in the backyard today! Amazing and beautiful birds.

Hawks are the best +Emmett Lollis. Rats and critters be gone!  Not sure why Google does that with videos that are automatic uploads +Dan Soto. Agreed, very hard to look at.

Ding Dong the DOMA's dead! This doesn't change everything at once, but is a big step in the right direction. 

“The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity.”

Well said.

In what is seen as a major victory for the gay-rights movement, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled the federal government may not restrict the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples. Th...

Really poor work by David Gregory in this interview.  Seriously, just a little journalism 101 dude. 
"Meet the Press" host asks a loaded question of Guardian journalist.

Very cool, but the idea of bunny's on the brain is a bit creepy. 
The rabbit sculpture above is the size of a typical bacterium and is made of a new type of resin...

I love how well this man handled this.  This is great positive exposure for Humanists.

To quote a bit of what he said: “This is a room in which there are many challenging debates, many moments of tension, of ideological division, of frustration. But this is also a room where, as my secular humanist tradition stresses, by the very fact of being human, we have much more in common than we have differences.”

I'm really proud of the work we did on this series.  A good resource for anyone wanting to know more about the issue of immigration in America. 
 
Immigration: The New Face of America is a collection of personal stories, interactive graphics and resources that seeks to put a human face on the political debate. It is a place to examine the "American Dream" and explore why it comes true for some, yet remains elusive for others. Join us in the conversation.

I find this talk at a Christian church in Mississippi refreshing. Although the title identifies him as an Atheist, in the video he identifies as a Secular Humanist and he makes some very sober, yet non-confrontational points about who he is and how he got there. It's long,  but worth the time.

Introduction
Born just once. Finding a path to happiness while muddling through to the other side. 

Putting on socks is also kinda nice!

I have circles for news, science, humanism, hockey and technology. I tend to be pretty varied in what I post and like to engage in civil conversations.

  • News: I am a journalist and news junkie, both domestic US and international. I also manage the +VOA News page. We can't change the world if we know nothing about it.
  • Science: I like all things science, but especially astronomy and the cosmos. Carl Sagan is a hero of mine.
  • Humanism: I believe people have the power to drive their own destiny through the choices they make. We are a compassionate social species that can and should take care of each other.
  • Hockey: I'm a Caps fan and try to still play when I have the chance. All hockey fans welcome (even those from Pittsburgh :)
  • Technology: The latest in gadgets, sites and software. This stuff amazes me every day.
