"I think this may turn out to be just a bunch of dildos."
The network reported that a London gay pride rally was waving an ISIS flag. Guess what was really on the banner?

No, +David MacKinnon , let's be better than they are. Let's wish Justice Scalia a long and healthy retirement or a fulfilling second career.

We shall overcome. In fact, today we have.

"The Fourteenth Amendment requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State."

VICTORY!

I've said this before, and I imagine that some folks will get sick of hearing it.

Two guys getting hitched because they only have eyes for each other are less of a threat to the institution of marriage than a man who uses his wife as a punching bag.

... There. I've said it again. And I'll continue to say it.

Lions are red and you can restrain them by holding on to their sparklers. It is appropriate to kneel on a blue camel if it does not have a neatly fitting notch between its humps. Furthermore, angels enjoy falconry and have golden raspberries coming out of their heads.

Very pleasant restaurant in Cupertino; extremely friendly and engaging staff with a lot of hands-on customer service from the owner. The food was delicious - roti with a fresh curry dip (delicious), one of the best chicken satay appetizers I've ever had, and a really spicy, flavoursome curry entree. Numerous flavors of shaved ice desserts; try the mango especially!

Unfortunately it was overcast and raining when I was here, which is a pity as I think that the view is one of Doyle's main attractions. Still; the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly and polite.
