An excellent piece. I came through the ape-house of high school straight into the military, then went trucking.

I was raised in a household many, if not most, would define as "liberal." I believed I was socially aware. But somewhere about a dozen years back I began to realize how big of a blind spot I was carrying around.

I still battle against dismissing some of this stuff as "harmless." I know it isn't.

And this is just because I love Matt Good's music, and the video's sorta clever.

If you saw the Nye/Ham debate tonight, you understand. If not, here's what you missed:

A good piece about the current state of rape culture.

Let's face it. Even the most dilligent of us has probably misappropriated a pic or a quote at one time or another. This is different. And vile.

Lori and I allowed the cats (who were there before I came along) outdoors only because the female had been marking for three years and the choice was let them out or put her down.

The marking continued, only somewhat abated. I was at my wits'-end-and-beyond. Then, after about two years, a coyote got our orange tabby, Cinnamon. The marking stopped.

Lori and I have moved from a house back into another fourth-floor apartment. Nabi seems content here, and only occasionally seems to want to go out--Mostly when she spots birds on a neighbouring rooftop. She's apparently happy, healthy, and at considerably less risk of death or injury. As are local birds, small mammals, and other wildlife.

"In eight years, Utah has quietly reduced homelessness by 78 percent, and is on track to end homelessness by 2015.How did Utah accomplish this? Simple. Utah solved homelessness by giving people homes. In 2005, Utah figured out that the annual cost of E.R. visits and jail stays for homeless people was about $16,670 per person, compared to $11,000 to provide each homeless person with an apartment and a social worker."
Now that is math I like -- it's cheaper to give people homes (at least in Utah) than it is to pay for them to be on the social system.

I'm not an "Everything causes cancer!" alarmist. However, I trust the methodology of both the California Office of Environmental Health and Consumer Reports.

And that said, I have consumed colas for several decades myself with a great deal of enjoyment, and this is unlikely to change my habits. Though I do like Pepsi Throwback better than the current HFCS-based Coke formulation.
