Arkansas bans church

Don't remember seeing this. About 3 months old already. Arkansas bans a church when they found out it wasn't a Christian church.

immortality!

Well, for a tiny animal called a hydra. An experiment is being run, and so far there have been no signs of senescence.

Re: Kick Gas

Interestingly enough, almost 70% of folks in Florence go to work by private car.

Compare and contrast, albaby. You were saying up-thread how the US is only about 4% transit, implying 90%+ autos. Also, I suspect a significant portion [more]

Introducing: Brother Dean

I don't know about other universities. I certainly never saw this at ASU. But when I was at UofA over 20 years ago they had a speakers' area on the mall. There were two in particular you could count on being their frequently...and it was particularly [more]

Re: the end of capitalism?

Did she say why or that it was just wrong?

I believe she had a book. So keeping in mind that the guest segment on Bill's show is usually less than 10 minutes (and my memory isn't what it once was), the gist seemed to be that the [more]

Re: Kick Gas

Inside cities: Dump cars. Welcome bikes.

We are in agreement.

(I might also add trolleys...not everyone can bike.)

...you can't really have a transit system that effectively serves 3BR/2BA detached single-family homes.

I disagree. I can think of two options without even putting any effort in it. One already exists, the other YOU told me about. [more]

Re: the end of capitalism?

I've not seen this episode but much of the world still lives off of a few dollars a day in income so I think the worldwide growth potential is still outstanding.

Two points. First, that is precisely the thinking she was criticizing. [more]

Florence existed LONGGGGGG before anyone knew what an automobile was.

Absolutely. It was designed to facilitate 0 cars per hour because there were no cars. Today's roads are designed to facilitate some number of cars (greater than 0), [more]

the end of capitalism?

Bill Maher had an interesting guest last Friday. The video doesn't seem to be available yet (not surprising...they re-run it all week), so no link I can find. In a nutshell she said we are on an unsustainable path (growth at all costs, etc) that is [more]

Re: Kick Gas

I'm not sure whether that makes much sense (it certainly invites a lot of searching questions about what a city is for, when you start trying to make life more difficult for the overwhelming majority of your residents because they're choosing a [more]

Re: cataloging as you go

I have started taking pictures of plaques (when available), and I also keep a sort of travelogue using a smartphone app. Both help. But I still find if I'm doing a tour (e.g. a hoho bus) that some stuff I have no idea what it is. Sure, the audio [more]

Re: More Hobby Lobby Damage

I think albaby has made a convincing case that RFRA needs to be repealed, and it needs to be repealed NOW. (Note he did not advocate repeal, only made it clear that it was the heart of the decision.)

That doesn't make HL a good decision, but [more]

Re: Public School Prosthelytizing?

I'm with AM on this one. I'd even go so far as to contact the local satanists (assuming they are easy to contact...never actually looked) and ask them to approach the school just to gauge the reaction.

I would be on the phone to the school TODAY. I would be demanding an explanation for this blatant proselytizing. I would also consider contacting the local media, and possibly the ACLU.
