Good. Would love if everybody moved out and they just made a state park from the pillboxes to the beach with lots of public parking where the houses used to be.

I really wish the would quit blaming speed. Speed is always factor because you can't run somebody over if you don't move. The problem I have is it implies the posted speed limits are too fast and the fix is lowering the already insanely low speed limits on this island even lower. Look people already ignore those signs because we aren't stupid and understand it's about PR and revenue generation, not safety. Lowering them lower isn't going to make anybody safer.

Not a fan personally. Your birth certificate is a statement of fact at time of birth, not a PR document. It records what sex you were anatomically born with, your given name, and should (wish this was legally mandated with DNA tests) both biological parents (unknown also acceptable in cases where the perceived father fails the test). You don't get a new BC when your name changes, shouldn't get a new one when your sex changes either. If it's all about extra chromosomes then just move away from anatomy and force every newborn to have their chromosomes checked.

Good news for Chicago, but people of Hawaii are disappointed. Thought we'd finally have a good library here. Shucks.
