Daniel, I've read a suggestion that Justice Ginsburg, a.k.a. "Notorious RBG", might consider strategically retiring now, so that President Obama, rather than a possible Republican president, can nominate her successor. The question is whether the "Republican'ts" could block Senate action until after the election.

Also, Anthony Kennedy is 79 and Stephen Breyer is 77. I wish them, as well as Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor, long life and health, but we should still keep this in mind:

Vote Democratic - The future of the Supreme Court depends on it

@Daniel - no kidding; it might be time to look into other countries to retire in.

Yeah, that's a great video as well, Daniel.  Thanks for posting it. 

I also enjoyed your childhood story about interracial marriages.  So many of kids' "But why?" questions are asked because what they see just doesn't make sense in their eyes. 

Just think about all the current fuss parents are making about allowing trans-gendered school students to use the bathroom in which they feel the most comfortable.  Some parents are outraged, but I bet if you surveyed the students, most would likely not even care or want it to be an issue.  That's why being a good parent (or mentor) is so crucial to our future.  Kids learn their values from adults.

Another great interview (and a cat.)

We still have plenty to do in the world, where in some countries we can't take life and liberty for granted!!

On a much lighter note, the Huffington Post published some art appropriate for wrapping up Bisexual Awareness Week. A bit from one of the cartoons:

“Wait, you’re a lesbian now?” “No. I told you I’m bi.”“Back to men? I knew you were straight.” “Nope. Still bi.”(...more...)

Here's a wonderful interview with Bisi Alimi, a Nigerian activist. I stand in awe of such individuals who are fighting for our rights in the most intolerant places.

Unfortunately you're absolutely right about that Carl. Nothing will ever make a dent with these people. Fingers in ears - la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la I can't hear you.

That's a great letter, Bertold. Many good rational points in it. But rationality isn't a strong characteristic of fundamental christians. At the end of the day, this gay pastor will be classified by the fundamentalists as just another deviant who is not a "True Christian." Case closed. No more need for additional arguments.

AN OPEN LETTER TO KIM DAVIS FROM A GAY PASTOR


Although it's rife with religious tripe, it's an interesting angle.
