Our chickens kept jumping the fence.  So we decided to make it a little more exciting for them.

It's maddening that there are still bans being proposed and in states like Indiana which is more purple than red, politically. Of course, there are hardly any states that haven't either approved it or banned it already. But this is a special case, just like my own state. Not just because it's a constitutional ban being proposed, but because of this:

"Leonard (Indiana lawmaker) said he's a firm believer that marriage should be between one man and one woman, but like others he has concerns about the amendment's second sentence, which would ban other arrangements "substantially similar" to marriage, including civil unions."

This is the same blackout language in Wisconsin's constitution that prevents even moderate steps toward same-sex marriage such as civil unions or state registries. 

The only possible silver lining is that in preventing any unions whatsoever, it dodges complacency from the false separate but equal concept of a civil union and forces opponents to push to wipe the ban from the constitution altogether. And I assure you I don't invoke the civil rights terminology lightly. It's cold comfort for those whose relationships are devalued by this sort of action, but there is some procedural benefit, I suppose.

Good luck to SpaceX with their next GEO launch, this time of the Thaicom 6 satellite.  No fly back to pad on this mission, but past flights have usually run a few tests wherever possible.  I expect this flight will be no exception.

I'm pleased to see the focus on Falcon Heavy.  I'm waiting eagerly for that maiden flight, but no word on a proposed date for it.

Good luck, everyone!

I'm no wide-eyed optimist in terms of decades-old tense foreign relations, but this could be the beginning of a slow retreat from the ledge in the Middle East.

For all of my friends who have spent a time or two on the streets.  And for all the people who think they know what that means.

And it's finally a done deal. Gay marriage is legal in Hawaii!!! One state at a time.

Alright, so I'm not picking the climate fight (because I'm not really up for those contentious debates of late), but if you ARE going to talk climate, don't pull out the "we can't even predict the weather more or less trends over blah,blah,blah". Climate and weather are related but not the same. They are the same as musical notes and a symphony. And in the same way I can describe Beethoven's 5th without discussing every single note in isolation, so also can I describe a climate trend without predicting next Tuesday's weather. It's a totally different scale, so STOP TREATING THEM AS THE SAME.
