A month ago, I launched an interactive Boston Globe timeline/map of same-sex marriage in the United States. I've been updating it almost every day since then, as new developments have happened on state and national levels. Check it out, and keep coming back, as we'll continue to add more.

+Larry Hannan of The Florida Times-Union investigated Jacksonville Transportation Authority bus drivers for a piece that ran this past Sunday. But before the piece even ran, it led to shake-ups at the JTA, unaware of drivers' records until Larry's investigation.

I was approached by my friend +Topher Sanders about designing the cover of his book "Aysel's Arrow," which was released on Amazon today. I got to try a few different variations before settling on the Hiaasen-esque cover that we used.

My friends and former colleagues at The Florida Times-Union have been busy with Jaguars, mustaches and more.

Games against KU were as important to Mizzou sports as the "Battlestar Galactica" episodes when you found out the identity of another Cylon. To Mizzou fans, Kansas was the rival among rivals. Kansas is the Cavil among the other Cylons. If the Big 12 were "The X-Files," Kansas was Cancer Man among the Syndicate, foiling Mizzou's Mulder and Scully. Watching Mizzou beat KU was like watching the trailer scene in "Kill Bill" when Darryl Hannah gets what she has coming.

When Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield announced on Friday that he's retiring, many of his records in the Sox organization were discussed. But my favorite of Wakefield's distinctions is that he became the oldest active player in the history of the team, leading to one of my first enterprise projects at The Boston Globe.

My friend and former colleague +Topher Sanders has co-written a book with Elizabeth Román. Aysel's Arrow is out today on Amazon. They graciously answered my questions about how the novel came about, and discuss the cover, which I designed.

I was surprised that I didn't see more page one treatments of this in Kansas.
