2.22.2006the evangelical outpost: Embracing Naomi:
Dobson and Reciprocal Beneficiary Contracts, I think I just might!
It looks like he's supporting an initiative in Colorado to have "binding legal contracts" between people, which is something I've suggested for years and years. As the blogger describes it:"The critics of Dobson and this legislation are, in my humble opinion, dead wrong. The bill is not about homosexuality, but about relationships. These relationships could cover a broad range of domestic situations, such as two elderly sisters who share a home or a widowed parent of an adult child who has Down’s syndrome or other potentially disabling condition. Such legal protections should be completely 'desexualized' and open to any two adults who desire to form a contractually dependent relationship."
There's also some really interesting discussion on that blog about the post...
2.15.2006Cheney Could Face Charges in Shooting - Yahoo! News: "Dallas defense attorney David Finn, who has been a state and a federal prosecutor, said Wednesday that a Texas grand jury could bring a charge of criminally negligent homicide..."
Just one problem at this point: Cheney didn't kill anyone!
2.09.2006Science and News - astronomy, Asteroid Alh2804-c, meteor, impact, global killers: "Newest computations show however that the course changed in the letzen months easily and the Asteroiden still more near to the earth will bring. According to estimations of the astronomers of the kit peak Observatory a 98%ige probability exists that the Asteroid collides in August 2006 with the earth."
Okay, not terribly clear, sure... but, basically, there's a rumor that we're all going to be killed by a meteor in August.
Time to brush up on that Bible reading and church attendance, right?
Wrong... that's not what it's about. But, anyway... hey, if it happens, it happens, right? Stay tuned for more information!
(P.S... my money is on the story being way, way bogus.)
2.07.2006Sony Reader details and pics - Engadget... and the comments are the interesting thing. Who knows where this'll go? We'll know in a couple years, right?
Just wanted you to know i was thinking about u and am missing you already, cant wait till the weekend when we'll have our own private screeening of FLAVOR OF LOVE.........loll .........
Considering "Sadiq" wrote from an e-mail account with the name "Abubakar Raji", which has an e-mail address of "seanjohn4life", I really do think this is SPAM.
So, is this an example of "viral marketing" for "Flavor of Love"? Or what?
Michelle Malkin: SO, WILL OUR SUPREME COURT BE NEXT? raises an interesting problem. In a nutshell, there's a depiction of Mohammed carved into the Supreme Court building. Islamic law prohibits depictions of Mohammed (hence one of the concerns with the recent Danish cartoons). So, now what? Politics and religion (or lack thereof) make strange bedfellows!
http://www.MacInTouch.com:As I say, I wouldn't have thought of that... but, unlike Apple, it's not my job to think about that kind of thing, either! Wow!
A MacInTouch reader pointed out a critical issue for some Apple customers who cannot buy a computer with a built-in video camera, thus ruling out both the iMac and the MacBook:
[MacInTouch Reader] It is frustrating to me (and probably a lot of others) that the next-generation Apple notebook has a built-in iSight without the option to not include it.
I work in an environment where cameras are a no-no. It's so bad that I cannot even have a camera in my car in the parking lot of the facility. Now, because of the built-in iSight, I cannot even think about upgrading from my personal PowerBook and there is, of course, no way of getting an Apple laptop as a business machine either.
Camera-restricted places are becoming more and more common these days, especially in work locations, so devices that include a built-in camera are starting to become less attractive to professionals that the MacBook Pro is targeted for.
Hopefully the next design revision will introduce the option of not having a built-in iSight camera.

And I suppose I can't blame the planet for that. :)
