  1. I grew up watching re-runs of Maverick on Saturday mornings and later Rockford Files. He was 86. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/21/movies/james-garner-actor-dies-at-86.html?_r=1
  2. the courthouse in Eureka Springs, Arkansas was open for business this morning (1 hour late) and had a line of people waiting at the door. http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2014/05/arkansa-gay-couples-jam-eureka-springs.html#disqus_thread
  3. The circuit court has since issued a stay, but only after more than 300 marriage licenses had been issued in four Michigan counties http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/2014/03/21/63425 If you read the ruling, the judge really tears into the states "expert" witnesses. By The way.....this liberal, activist judge was appointed by Reagan.
  4. Bill Maher on Noah: http://youtu.be/ld_tg4W7Hf8
  5. Central Park is Located Right about in the middle of the island of Manhattan, the building that the pictures were taken from is at the southern end. If you look north, you will see the Park just past the cluster of taller buildings that includes the Empire State Building. It's there, just a lot in the way.
  6. from on top of the new wold trade center http://time.com/world-trade-center/ scroll down to the gigapan picture and on the right hand side click on the icon with the 2 arrows to go to full screen. then waste some time.......
  7. I posted it on your board over a year ago......several people were NOT amused. I thought it was funny.....
  8. More pictures here (first pic shows the crowd of protesters from westboro....all three of them): http://ftw.usatoday.com/2014/02/missouri-students-block-westboro-baptist-churchs-protest-of-michael-sam/
  9. The president of the kansas senate has spoken out against the bill in it's present form: http://www.kansas.com/2014/02/14/3289387/senate-leaders-same-sex-marriage.html The bill will have to be changed to pass the senate, and may not pass the house in a less radical form.
  10. Judge John G. Heyburn II ruled today that Kentucky’s ban on recognizing same-sex marriages from other states violates the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection clause. U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II was appointed in 1992 by George H.W. Bush. http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/2014/02/12/62378#comments full decision here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/206725994/3-13-cv-00750-47 sorry about the double post....the power went out while I was editing. I guess stranger things have happened.

  12. Sorry Cole, but Georgia has snow plows, and salt spreaders. The State and several counties (not so much the city of Atlanta proper) really dropped the ball in their response to the storm, though the decisions were probably made by politicians. The political people are always afraid they will close offices or schools in anticipation of a storm and then the storm wont happen, making them look like idiots (instead of incompetent). This is probably the 5th or 6th time this has happened since I moved here about 20 years ago. They always promise to do better "next time", but then react the same way during the next storm.
  13. I can drive on snow....kind of hard to drive on ice without special tires. Fulton County (where Atlanta is) still has over 2000 students stuck at school because the roads are still ice.
  14. People are still stuck on the roads 20 hours later.....roads are solid ice. The governor of Georgia claims the storm was a surprise. ...he must not have been watching tv, they where warning about the storm 2 days ago. Nobody put salt down on the roads....maybe they are saving it for the bigger storms. I ended up walking 5 miles so I could stay with some friends. If I had tried to drive I would still be in my car.
  15. I have a Gmail account only because I had to get one for my phone. I mostly use Hotmail, but use filters that get rid of (almost) all of the junk. Both accounts are linked to a separate email account on my phone, so if one or both go down I can at least get to older email even if I can't send anything.
  16. So, the kid being bullied is disturbing classes......expel the kid being bullied. Makes sense to me
  17. The ratings for this seasons premier of Duck Dynasty were down 28% from last seasons premier. http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/01/16/duck-dynasty-ratings-controversey/ http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2014/01/millions-abandon-duck-dynasty.html#disqus_thread
  18. maybe......Hell (Michigan) did just freeze over last week. Oklahoma’s Same-Sex Marriage Ban Declared Unconstitutional http://www.boxturtlebulletin.com/2014/01/14/61812#comments
  19. The stay has been denied: http://www.buzzfeed.com/chrisgeidner/appeals-court-refuses-to-halt-utah-marriages-for-same-sex-co The state is appealling to the supreme court
