Yea for science!


Obama's pick to solve the energy crisis
- Andrew Leonard

"You should interview Steven Chu," the scientist at the Joint Genome Institute in Walnut Creek, Calif., told me. "He already has one Nobel Prize. He wants to get a second one for solving the energy crisis."

That was two years ago, and I sorely regret not following through and landing an interview with Chu, a physicist who has dedicated his post-Nobel Prize career to the development of alternative sources of energy. Because as Barack Obama's nominee for secretary of energy, Steven Chu is going to get a chance to make his dreams come true, with the full backing of the U.S. government.

Constitutional Law again

I had been waiting all semester to get to Bowers v. Hardwick Lawrence v. Texas and Romer v. Evans they were scheduled for Thursday, an extra-long class, 8:30 - 11:50. I had even stayed up late to make sure I had read and thought about the opinions. (LvT reminded me of the Molly Ivins gem I posted Wed night. ) which I also posted as my facebook status so the law school kids would see it ;-) Got to class and the prof was speeding thru the decisions... and at 10:45 he says, okay, we're done, good luck on the exam! I was like WTF??? 10 min for Romer??? I feel totally ripped off. Someone told him we don't get out of class until 11:50 and he said, oh... do you want to come back and talk about it more? I was practically yelling from my perch at the top of the room Yes Yes Yes! and my classmates were glaring at me. We got back from break and we didn't even go back to the cases, we just talked about the exam. What a disappointment.

I'm planning to go to the Friday, Dec. 12 8pm show of Dreaming out of the Digital by the Stripteasers & Alt Performance Group... Tickets available at Wanna come with me? :-)

While reading Lawrence v. Texas...

In Lawrence v. Texas (2003) the supreme court overturned Bowers v. Hardwick (1986) and said states can't prohibit consenting adults from enjoying sodomy. It reminded me of this excellent little clip by Molly Ivins


Texas' anti-sex-toy law was overturned Feb. 14, 2008, but they're still illegal in Alabama!


Enjoy!

Two good articles

About NYS delays on gay marriage legislation:


Stuff that Nader talked about during dinner regarding the impending government bailout of the automakers shows up in this really good article from Robert Weismann:



And bummer news: my tuition for spring semester, as an out-of-state law student, just increased by $2,130 :-(

burchfield-penny opening

I'm at the birchfield-penney opening watching A    Hotel Nourishing (look 'em up on myspace). not bad at all... the drummer mentioned this gig to me when he was working the wegmans checkout line. I have video but can't figure out proper mobile posting so you'll have to wait till I get home and post pix and vid.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
