That car is part of '70s pop culture. I think the Confederate flag is awful, but painting over this piece of history is a stupid, stupid decision. Watson is an asshole.
US golfer Bubba Watson is to paint over the Confederate flag on the car from the Dukes of Hazzard TV series, the latest backlash against the symbol.

It's good to be white! I could not be more pleased, than being a white, male, American in good health. I don't know, but I think I must be in the top 10 percent, of the world.

Now can we have gun control?

Also, nine people killed in a church isn't any different from nine people killed in a cinema, or nine people killed in a night club. Being in a church doesn't make the crime worse.
Nine people were shot to death at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, on Wednesday night, the Charleston Police Department confirmed at news conference early Thursday. Calling i

Apparently, the racist shitbag who perpetrated this crime (Dylann Storm Roof) has been caught in Shelby, NC.

What a load of US-centric bullshit. It seems reality has passed this asshat by. A few years from now, this op-ed will seem horribly out of date.

The author apparently supposes "normal" marriage is the type that has existed in the US for the last couple of centuries, and seems to completely ignore the 5 or 6 thousand years before that, in hundreds of different cultures around the world.

Social norms change all the time. The author of this op-ed does not seem to understand this simple notion.

Read the article twice, still not sure about the point the author was/is trying to make.
As a grouchy, actual conservative (..as opposed to the right-wing Christian fundamentalists that call themselves "conservatives" these days..) the only (very vaguely-made point) I can get behind is that marriage itself is obsolete, and (in my opinion) unfairly administered.  Why should I, a single person, have to pay more taxes than a married person?  Or higher insurance rates?
In any case, I agree with the Supremes' ruling: Marriage is a contract and legally speaking, you can't offer that contract to one and not offer it to another.
Now, about us oppressed single people....

It's full of religious bullshit, but the essence of this document is an excellent, science-based plea for people to protect our planet. Good stuff.

Movie Velociraptor versus reality.

The real Velociraptor was about the size of a turkey and had feathers. Still cool though.

Smile Solutions is a first class dental establishment. There's nothing pleasant about going to see the dentist, but it really helps when you are greeted by friendly staff in a comfortable, modern facility. This clinic is easy to get to and it has ample parking. I had some work done earlier today. Despite having a deep cavity in an upper rear molar that needed a filling, I experienced no pain at all during the surprisingly brief procedure. The chair was comfortable, everything was spotlessly clean and efficiently laid out, and there was music being piped around the clinic to help me relax. - - - UPDATE - - - Yesterday, I had an extraction of a molar and a bone graft to prepare for an implant in 2015. The procedure was physically demanding (lots of digging and heavy pressure), but relatively painless. I was told to expect post-surgery pain and I was prescribed Motrin for the day and Vicodin to help me sleep; however, 24 hours later I have almost no pain at all. Dr. Nguyen is obviously a very skilled dentist and I couldn't be happier with Smile Solutions of West Chester.

I am absolutely delighted by the service I received from Merry Maids. It started with a telephone consultation, during which my specific needs were discussed with courtesy and understanding. I was looking for a one-time cleaning of a VERY dirty condo apartment. Two women turned up exactly on time for the appointment, carrying everything they needed to do the various tasks. They worked extremely hard under difficult circumstances. Some of the grime I asked them to get rid of had been accumulating for years, so they needed to put in a tremendous effort to get things looking like new. I was very impressed with their work. Two bathrooms and a kitchen were transformed. I've worked with other cleaning services before, but this was the first time I've been really satisfied with the results. I thoroughly recommend Merry Maids of West Chester for their hard work, professionalism and attention to detail.

I keep coming back to this place for the great food. Because the building is enormous, it is easily capable of handling hundreds of diners at once. As a consequence of that, it is cost effective for Shady Maple to have a surprisingly wide selection of food for buffet-style eating. It is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking. It is a popular place, so expect to wait a few minutes to pay, and then another few minutes to be seated. I can't give it 5 stars because the atmosphere isn't that great. With so many people in close proximity, there's a lot of noise and you need to have your wits about you when you are wandering around filling your plate in case you bump into another diner. Also, it isn't particularly cheap. The price varies from day to day (from as little as $18 for dinner to as much as $24, per person) and most annoyingly, it is not open on Sunday.

The cakes at Kyj's Bakery are almost too good to be true. They make a truly spectacular strawberry shortcake with layers of fresh cream, strawberries and a sponge-like cake that melts in the mouth. And if you are looking for a birthday cake (decorated or not), there is simply no better place in the Delaware Valley.

I took my car to Ron Wise Auto Body following a recommendation from my insurance company. I was not disappointed. All damage was repaired in a timely fashion and the car was returned to me fully detailed. Some additional work was needed to get things "just right", and Ron took care of it quickly and without complaint. This is a family run business with a nice personal touch. I received regular updates over the phone, and Ron took care of all the negotiations with the insurance company and adjuster so that I didn't have to do anything. I hope I won't need to have accident damage repaired ever again, but if it becomes necessary I will certainly consider going back to Ron Wise Auto Body. I have no hesitation in giving the firm a strong recommendation.

I've bought two Fords from here, and I always get my Edge serviced here by the great service team. I moved 30 miles away last year, but I still bring my car back here because they do such a great job at a competitive price.
