It's the Commitment, Stupid - How to sell gay marriage. By William Saletan
Topic: Current Events 3:57 pm EST, Nov 20, 2003

] Homosexuality can be separated from marriage in roughly
] the same way. Marriage is a broadly shared American
] value. You don't have to support homosexuality to support
] marriage. A politician can say, "I'm pro-marriage. The
] issue isn't whether you're straight or gay. The issue is
] whether you support marriage."

This is a fantastic article for anyone interested in the political ramifications of the Mass. ruling concerning gay marriage. A clear way for liberals to win the argument.

Topic: Miscellaneous 1:57 pm EST, Nov 14, 2003

Who is Krishna? Why is he blue? And why do women find him so attractive? Step into his world and join the adventures of a Hindu god.

This interactive web site allows you to explore a selection of the paintings featured in the exhibition Painted Visions from India and Pakistan, Past and Present.

This is quite possibly the single most beautiful and effective online flash-based "museum exhibit" I have seen yet. This is what Flash is truly capable of.

Viewing California Politics Through the Lens of a Science-Fiction Movie
Topic: Miscellaneous 4:03 pm EST, Nov 13, 2003

The pollution is horrendous. The rich have withdrawn into fortress-style towers. The avenues teem with unruly, eccentrically dressed immigrants who speak a rough street language instead of English. References to these scenes show up everywhere, from books about politics to civic-planning documents like "L.A. 2000," a look at the future commissioned by Tom Bradley, when he was mayor of the city in the 1980's. The report warned that the region might deteriorate into a scene from "Blade Runner": a featureless sprawl seething with class and ethnic hostilities. In "A California State of Mind," the public-opinion analyst Mark Baldassare writes that Californians who were asked about the future "presented an image more like a nightmare than a utopia" — descriptions that recalled a certain science-fiction movie.

Even Raymond Chandler painted an ugly picture of California. Everything moves faster here, technology and politics, qnd also all the problems that threaten to turn the entirety of the Western world into miserable scifi scenario. Yes, we're afraid of the bad bits. who wouldn't be?

HIV vaccine trial ends in failure
Topic: Health and Wellness 1:13 pm EST, Nov 12, 2003

Preliminary results from the AIDSVAX trial in Thailand show it does not work, say its makers VaxGen.

Those given the vaccine were no less likely to contract HIV, and the jab did not slow the progress of the disease.

Another vaccine fails.

And certainly dozens of others will also fail before scientists come up with one that works that doesn't carry a risk of actually infecting the person being vaccinated. HIV mutates like mad, too... Even if a successful vaccine is found, will it protect against all strains? will the virus be able to mutate around it?

And once there is a successful vaccine, will we see a return to 70's-style promiscuity?

Pornographer says he bought nude Jessica Lynch photos; calls her 'a good kid'
Topic: Current Events 2:30 pm EST, Nov 11, 2003

Pornographer Larry Flynt says he bought nude photos of Pfc. Jessica Lynch last month to publish in Hustler magazine, but changed his mind because she is a "good kid ... and a victim of the Bush administration."

I originally couldn't figure Larry Flynt's motivation, but in light of Jessica Lynch's recent objections to her story being used as propaganda by the Bush administration, I can see Flynt being amused the fact that Hustler magazine is showing more restraint and respect for Lynch than the goverment.

In fact, I'm laughing too.

"Last year," I told him, "I picked up a woman in labor who had three contractions in 12 minutes in my cab. We made it to the emergency room just in time. Her husband told me they'd been calling for over an hour. You had to wait only 40 minutes."

The Gettysburg Powerpoint Presentation

"Good morning. Just a second while I get this connection to work. Do I press this button here? Function-F7? No, that's not right. Hmmm. Maybe I'll have to reboot. Hold on a minute. Um, my name is Abe Lincoln and I'm your president. While we're waiting, I want to thank Judge David Wills, chairman of the committee supervising the dedication of the Gettysburg cemetery. It's great to be here, Dave, and you and the committee are doing a great job. Gee, sometimes this new technology does have glitches, but we couldn't live without it, could we? Oh - is it ready? OK, here we go: "
