links in th’ morning

Princeton Proposition 8 to protect traditional sidewalk values. (being a freshmen is a choice!) I’m flattered (well, “flattered” isn’t exactly the right word) that people are taking this rejection of gay marriage pretty seriously, although many many laws banning gay marriage have passed in other states and it never hit the national consciousness. Of course, this one is different in that it takes a way a right that had been given (by the courts) but, you know, still. I’d be pretty darn happy with civil unions in Texas even if it isn’t called “marriage” for a very long time, but this is exactly the case in California…

Take the civics quiz! I scored 30/33=91% although I had some lucky guesses. Our elected officials don’t do so great on it.

Here’s what to do if you break a CFL bulb – basically, don’t freak out, let the room air out for 15 minutes, then scoop up the pieces in a plastic bag (and wear gloves).

One thought on “links in th’ morning”

  1. Yeah, I’m touched by the outrage as well. I mean, I’m outraged by the idea that a majority could vote away a minority’s civil rights, but that people not affected by it are also outraged is good. 🙂
