My mom (presumably with Miss 7's help) made a fairy garden. Very cute! Seriously, tho, fairies are evil. Be careful.

Small SC town rallies for fired gay police chief -
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
Winnipeg zoo wolves dig tunnel to get into polar bear enclosure | CTV News -
Winnipeg zoo wolves dig tunnel to get into polar bear enclosure | CTV News
"There are no howls after a pack of wolves managed to get into a polar bear enclosure at a Winnipeg zoo. The Assiniboine Park Zoo says it has made some changes after the wolves dug a tunnel from their enclosure to visit the bears. Media reports say five wolves walked around without disturbing two female polar bears that were asleep at the time. The tunnel forced the zoo to remove the wolves and the two bears and close part of the new Journey to Churchill exhibit until repairs could be made. The critters are now back in their respective enclosures and the exhibit has reopened. A zoo spokesman says such adjustments are absolutely normal with the opening of any new exhibit." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
I love that the wolves were basically just going "ehhh....nice. maybe we can sleep here tonight guys?" - Sir Shuping is just sir

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

Kansas was supposed to be the GOP’s tax-cut paradise. Now it can barely pay its bills. - Vox -
"In 2012, Kansas governor Sam Brownback signed a massive tax cut into law, arguing that it would boost the state's economy. Eventually, he hoped to eliminate individual income taxes entirely. "Our place, Kansas, will show the path, the difficult path, for America to go in these troubled times," he said." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Yet though Brownback is running for reelection this fall in a deep red state, he's trailed his Democratic challenger in 3 of the 4 most recent polls — and his marquee tax cut appears to be the main reason. Kansas is now hundreds of millions of dollars short in revenue collection, its job growth has lagged the rest of the nation, and Moody's has cut the state's bond rating. "Governor... more... - Andrew C (✔)
"After the cuts became law, it was undisputed that Kansas's revenue collections would fall. But some supply-side analysts, like economist Arthur Laffer, argued that increased economic growth would deliver more revenue that would help cushion this impact. Yet it's now clear that the revenue shortfalls are much worse than expected. "State general fund revenue is down over $700 million... more... - Andrew C (✔)
"And the economic benefits Brownback promised haven't materialized either. Chris Ingraham wrote at Wonkblog that Kansas's job growth has lagged behind the rest of the country, "especially in the years following the first round of Brownback tax cuts."" - Andrew C (✔)
Really they just need deeper cuts and more time. Because growth is like magic. With a pen you can make it disappear. - Todd Hoff

Why 10% of the Population Hates Cilantro and the Rest Doesn't Know Any Better [Blog post from "Reason I Am Here" by Nacho Caballero]
From the September 2013 post: "Cilantro tastes like soap to approximately 10% of the people who have had their genotype analyzed by 23andMe. The currently accepted explanation is that those of us who passionately despise cilantro were born with a genetic variant known as a single-nucleotide polymorphism (or SNP, pronounced ‘snip’)." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
I'm assuming that must be true for ginger as well, since I used to have that problem with both (though ginger far worse - it still sometimes crops up when I eat something with a really intense fresh ginger taste.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, I wonder if there's a similar genetic variant somewhere accounting for strong feelings against avocado. - Stephen Mack
Not just a SNP, but a missense mutation ;) #YourMutantSuperpower - Victor Ganata
I figure there are just some foods I won't like (lima beans, oh dear god no) and some that I learn to like (ginger and cilantro after repeated low-level exposure) and some that I just start liking out of nowhere (beets, black coffee.) - Jennifer Dittrich
10% of what population? It's a staple ingredient in Vietnamese, Thai, Cambodian, and Mexican dishes, amongst others. - Professor A.I.
That's an interesting question. The article cops out by just saying "10% of 23andMe customers" (a non-representative sample if ever there was one). This study from Cornell ( was looking at mostly those of European ancestry, but does have results from the subjects from other parts of the world, where it appears that in South Asia, the incidence is only 3.9% compared to 12.4% overall. - Stephen Mack
I'm Mexican and I hate cilantro. I always get mad at myself when I forget to omit it from pho. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
Gabrielle, per you're in an elite group of 8.7% of Latinos for whom cilantro tastes like soap. - Stephen Mack
Jennifer, are you a supertaster? - Stephen Mack
Nope. I just really don't like lima beans. There really aren't too many foods I dislike, or find too strong, honestly. - Jennifer Dittrich
Duck eggs? - Professor A.I.
My friend used to taste soap, but now she doesn't. - Meg VMeg

I find that I like coriander and cilantro equally well. Indeed, I can't tell them apart. Wonder why that is? (No, I still don't use emoticons.) - Walt Crawford
I only like organized coriander. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I saw a similar new report on TV about broccoli. The scientists extracted some enzyme from it and had some kids taste it. Most didn't taste anything at all while one kid immediately made a face and yelled 'yuck!' It mentioned the DNA aspect but I clearly remember that little kid. :P - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

"High-quality intellectual! Yes, I mean you! You are thinking: What is Rise & Fall of Great Powers? Is history book? No! Is book for give big muscles? No, no! (After read this book, you still contain only small muscles. Sorry.) It is NOVEL about entire of world in last quarter-century, from end of Cold War, to up and down of America power, to tech revolution of today. But mostly, is novel about my favourite person, Tooly Zylberberg, and secrets of her life. I am careful now - danger I say too much. I give only bit more: Tooly is bookseller in countryside of Wales. Always, she is reading. But one story she never understand: story of her past. When she is girl, strange items happen. She is taken away, around Asia, Europe, America, for many years with mystery persons. Why for? I cannot say on back of book! One of mystery persons is me, Humphrey, old man from Russia who cheats in Ping-Pong and eats avocados. There is Sarah, who drives us crazy, and not in good way.

I dare say that if a retail store said it was "against their religious beliefs" to allow guns to be carried inside their store, the USA might drive off a cliff.

I like how you bring up larger implications but then suggest that we should ignore the larger injustices of the world within this context.

We started a conversation about relevant topics within the U.S. itself. Sharia law within Arab countries is an entirely different topic that was brought up out of nowhere in my opinion. While yes, what is going on in those countries is much, much worse as far as the treatment of women, it has nothing to do with the topic that Johnny brought up. If you would like to discuss those atrocities, then I would suggest starting your own topic instead of hijacking someone elses. - Chris Topher

As the internet is forever here's a portion of my eulogy yesterday so mom lives forever in another place.
For the benefit of those of you who did not grow up in our full house the first thing you might not know about Barbara is that she was wicked smart. A graduate of UC Davis, a voracious reader, first chair cello in her younger days, and the sole viewer of PBS's Masterpiece Theater. There was no newspaper editor who could get a mistake in grammar or punctuation past her red pen and the articles final resting place of shame on the kitchen refrigerator. - Steve C
But like all true superheroes she used her powers only for good channeling her talents to help the needy, the whiny, and the masses to be molded, aka her children. While being a supermom has come to be a trendy topic I would like to imagine that if a Tiger Mom walked up to our mom, Barbara would simply slap her across the face and turn and walk away shaking her head. Alas since no... more... - Steve C

And we all got here because of mom. Because she was deathly allergic to nuts but made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone for 15 straight years. Because she was willing to drive from morning till night to get 9 kids through the infinite maze of school, band, and sports. Because she was not only at every baseball and soccer game but more than likely the team mom and scorekeeper.... more... - Steve C
When Genevieve passed away mom lost 1/9th of her heart, and she said I was the strong one. But she is the one who carried on caring for the eight of us. It is a shame to lose her when I am all of 2 weeks into this parenting thing but she gave all she was, and all she had to all of us, and that alone within me is worth more than the advice of a thousand tiger moms. - Steve C
