Indiana law allows Satanists to perform marriages, but not Buddhists - LA Times
""At oral argument Indiana's lawyer said that the high priestess of the Church of Satan (along with Wiccans and those who worship Baal) could solemnize marriages under subsection (1), while Buddhists, many other religions, and humanists cannot," read the panel's opinion, which was written by circuit judge Frank Easterbrook. Easterbrook noted that the humanist group in the case could perform "sham" weddings and have the unions later officially solemnized by a court official -- or classify itself a religious organization and call its leader "clergy" -- but both options would be hypocritical, the judge said. "It is irrational to allow humanists to solemnize marriages if, and only if, they falsely declare that they are a 'religion,'" Easterbrook wrote. "It is absurd to give the Church of Satan, whose high priestess avows that her powers derive from having sex with Satan, and the Universal Life Church, which sells credentials to anyone with a credit card, a preferred position over Buddhists, who emphasize love and peace."" - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Dad's heartbreaking Internet plea spurs strangers
"Just days after his infant daughter's death, Nathen Steffel asked strangers on the Internet for only one thing: He and his wife wanted a photo of their daughter without the breathing tubes and tape that masked her little face. The response has been overwhelming. Hundreds of photos, sketches and paintings have poured into the family's northwestern Ohio home and their inbox. "I'm getting messages in languages from all over the world," he said Wednesday. "It's more than I can count." His daughter, Sophia, died last Thursday at a Cincinnati hospital from complications of a tumor in her liver, six weeks after she was born in Columbus. She was awaiting a transplant when she died. Her father posted a message on Reddit asking if anyone could use their photo of Sophia in the hospital and remove the tubes attached to her face and wrist. "Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes," he wrote." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

It's $7.99 on iTunes and on Google Play. Funny that Apple sent me a promo e-mail saying it was on sale on iTunes, but I'm glad I checked Amazon first to save $4. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

This was good but not great IMHO. I found myself wishing that this was either "more R&B" or "more white girl pop" but it straddles that line. Reminded me a bit of Janelle Monae... - Steve and 4 other people

This NY housewife on Wife Swap has a chihuahua that looks identical to my Fat Rose.
I'm sorry but due to an old inside joke I find this hilarious as Fat Rose = vagina. :) Thanks for the super laugh even if unintentional. - Steve C

I'm a poor person with a water bill but I still feel that stricter penalties for water wasters should ALWAYS be in place.
Especially in drought zones. I want to nut punch all the people here in so cal watering their lawns at noon DAILY! - Steve C
watering at noon is usually what the government buildings are doing here. :P - Big Joe Silence
That reminds me. The City of Alameda is going to get a very sternly-worded email from me if they don't stop watering the damn sidewalk at the corner of Main and Appezatto. I have to choose between getting soaked, riding through the sprinklers, or diverting into oncoming traffic. - vicster: full-bodied
Where I live in the Chicago suburbs, "watering ban is in effect from May 15 to Oct. 1. All outside water use is banned between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. This includes lawn sprinkling, washing cars, filling swimming pools or any recreational use of hoses. The ban complies with state water conservation practices. Violators can receive a citation, which carries a $50 fine for the first offense." I'm surprised a drought area doesn't have something like this. - Betsy
CA in general has a tendency to live as if there's no tomorrow. We even have a Yolo county. lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Pretty sure the customer service guy at my credit union thinks I'm a total ditz.
It might be because I forgot my password, got locked out of my account, and wasn't 100% on whether or not I knew my account number. >.> - Heather
I never have a clue on bank account numbers but then I too might be a total ditz so you're not in the clear yet. :) - Steve C
I keep trying to blame dyslexia, I think it's working. But I still got laughed at. (not in a rude way, more like "oh another one of these") - Heather

Do any of your people have a fountain that people throw money in? How do you deal with the money? Ours is gross and corroded and the bank won't take it, so we have buckets of useless money sitting around.
Is there a scrap merchant nearby? - Pete
Will one of those coin machines take it? - Soup in a TARDIS
Soup, no--the machines won't read it, which is why the bank won't take it. We found that page from the Mint but are hoping to avoid having to spend the money to mail this stuff there, which seems, uh, inefficient. We've tried cleaning it with various things to no avail. - laura x
Two birds with one stone, maybe: crowdsource a coin-sort in the library, with an explanation of the problem and perhaps a request for underwriting the mailing cost. - RepoRat
Start chucking the money back at people as they walk past? - Steve C
McDonalds might take it... - Joe
Use it to pay for databases? - maʀtha from Android
Turn it into jewelry and charge people ridiculous amounts of money for it--proceeds to benefit the library? - Hedgehog
^that would be awesome if you mailed it to overdrive to pay for books :) too bad it's only paper money that's "good for all debts public and private" eta: my pointer was to martha comment - Christina Pikas
Apparently there's a company in Dallas that cleans and sorts fountain coins for charities. https://www.google.com/search... - Betsy
As to why the coins go bad: "When the mint needed to change pennies from solid copper to copper plated zinc in 1982 because of inflation, the durability of pennies sitting in a wishing well could not be at the top of their priorities. The pennies corrode horrendously and it's not always a simple matter of washing or cleaning them if they have become seriously disfigured by corrosion." http://www.finishing.com/276... - Betsy

Ben Kingsley to star in Spike TV's 'Tut' - MSN TV News
"Ben Kingsley has signed on for Spike TV's upcoming event series "Tut," which is slated to premiere next year, Spike's executive vice president, original series Sharon Levy said Monday. "Gandhi" star Kingsley will play Ay, the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamun who wields tremendous power and influence as the top adviser to the young Egyptian ruler. Also from TheWrap: Ben Kingsley to Voice Bagheera in Disney's 'The Jungle Book' "Tut," which will be shot on location in Morocco and Canada, will be produced by Muse Entertainment ("The Kennedys," "Being Human"). Spike's first scripted event series in eight years, "Tut" is another peg in traditionally male-skewing Spike's ongoing efforts to reach a more gender-balanced audience. Calling "Tut" the "biggest and most ambitious project in Spike's history," Levy added that the network is "so fortunate" to have Kingsley aboard the project. "Who better to lead the cast than one of the greatest actors of our generation — Ben Kingsley," Levy said.... more... - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Small SC town rallies for fired gay police chief
"LATTA, S.C. (AP) — When openly gay police chief Crystal Moore was fired by a mayor who condemned her lifestyle as "questionable," she expected her two decade career in law enforcement was over. Then, this conservative, small town rebelled. The people of Latta, who voted overwhelmingly for a state amendment banning gay marriage eight years ago, turned against the mayor, stripped him of his powers and rehired Moore. They said her dedication to the town mattered more than her sexual orientation." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Va. man plants flag, claims African country, calling it ‘Kingdom of North Sudan’ - The Washington Post
"Jeremiah Heaton was playing with his daughter in their Abingdon, Va., home last winter when she asked whether she could be a real princess. Heaton, a father of three who works in the mining industry, didn’t want to make any false promises to Emily, then 6, who was “big on being a princess.” But he still said yes. “As a parent you sometimes go down paths you never thought you would,” Heaton said. Within months, Heaton was journeying through the desolate southern stretches of Egypt and into an unclaimed 800-square-mile patch of arid desert. There, on June 16 — Emily’s seventh birthday — he planted a blue flag with four stars and a crown on a rocky hill. The area, a sandy expanse sitting along the Sudanese border, morphed from what locals call Bir Tawil into what Heaton and his family call the “Kingdom of North Sudan.” There, Heaton is the self-described king and Emily is his princess." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Are you supposed to be running yet or are you going rogue? - Steve C
Thanks, Jenny! I'm very glad to be able to (slowly) get back into running. It ended up being 5 weeks of PT for the tendinitis of the posterior tibialis, but my physical therapist put me on a schedule where I can start and end with a quarter-mile jog, and then have a run in between -- first a quarter mile run, then half mile, then mile, going only every other day, repeating each distance once (increasing by a half-mile every other run). So it works out that I'll be able to run a total of 17 miles in July. - Stephen Mack
SteVe, nossir, no rogue for me. After I first had shin pain in April, I took brief periods off running and then resumed, only to have the shins hurt more than before. So this third break I'm taking the PT seriously and following the schedule they laid out for me. - Stephen Mack
