Gender Prison: The Fraudulence of 'Family Values'

Family can be so very toxic.

Robby Rikard is a baptist pastor because of course he is...our story just wouldn't be the same if he weren't. However much he wants this story to be about his cousin Jessica and her husband, Robby is the central actor in our drama (written by Rob Watson aka @JandJDad, who deserves major props)..

Other characters in the story are Robby's cousin Jessica and her husband Nick and American Family Association hater-in-chief Bryan Fisher.

Sunday Train: West Virginia River Runner Rail and the Steel Interstates (from 1 May 2011)

Tonight's Sunday Train is a repeat of the 1 May, 2011 Sunday Train, from before the Sunday Train came to Voices On The Square

Burning the Midnight Oil for Living Energy Independence

The flashy rail projects are the very HSR projects to build bullet trains serving urban areas with millions of people.

But the role of rail in supporting sustainable extends beyond the bullet train system alone. It may not be critical to the financial success of these bullet trains to provide service to people living in urban areas of 50,000 to 200,000 ~ but its critical to these people to have access to some form of sustainable intercity transport.

Indeed, if we are going to be harvesting wind power, solar power, sustainably coppiced biocoal, geothermal, run of river hydro, and other sustainable resources ... we are going to be creating incomes in areas away from the 1m+ cities. We best look after the needs of the people who come to those areas looking for work.

The Breakfast Club (Cold and Flu Season)

I could make more elaborate excuses, but they'd just suck down the
energy I've found in such short supply the last couple of days.  I'm
hopeful I'll get back to my normal level of obnoxiousness soon, but it's
a wish not a promise.

In today's highly abbreviated version I haven't even bothered to summarize the news with quotes, it's all links all the time.

The Trans News...on a roll

Every once in awhile the stories pile up and in trying to remain current, I publish a compendium of transgender news stories. I know that makes for a long read, but if I didn't do this, some storries wouldn't get any overage at all.

I hope you'll at least scan the stories. A better educated public is a fairer public.

The Breakfast Club (Trolling, trolling, trolling)

 
breakfast beers photo breakfastbeers.jpgScience and Tech  

Last week I was surfing my Tech sites when I ran across an article celebrating the demise of Windows 7 OEM pre-installation packages which HP and Dell
(among others) buy in bulk and re-sell at a reasonable price to
roll-your-own and custom builders.
