Obama gave a big speech in Cairo yesterday - here's the full text and the hour-long video. Pretty impressive and even-handed.
Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Tiananmen Square, and the Chinese government tried to block foreign reporters from recording by...using umbrellas.
New Hampshire passed a same-sex marriage bill into law this week, leaving Rhode Island as the only New England state that hasn't legalized it. Which is pretty crazy when I stop and think about it. The map is turning more green!
A long article about gay marriage from a Burkean conservative point of view.
Loving Day, the anniversary of the Supreme Court striking down anti-mixed race marriage laws, is this weekend.
Cool guys don't look at explosions (video).
A long "screenplay" about how hard it is to get security right - this really opened my eyes!

i fixed my posting -- yes, mrs. lovng is sadly no longer with us
thanks for pointing this out
That's sad! I didn't realize she had passed away.

(ID that country song)
I've been in a song snippet kinda mood :-)
It's one of my favorites from the first half of the 90s :)
I'm not sure I've ever actually heard the original, but I have a good a capella version by the U of Rochester Yellowjackets...
ah! I wondered where you had gotten that particular lyric. :)
William and Mary's group Reveille does a good rendition of it.
I believe the original is by Alamaba. "In A Hurry," if I'm not mistaken.
