Marriage & the Defense Thereof

Wow! Such a hot topic. Orson Scott Card wrote Civilization Watch, and provides a scathing indictment of homosexual "marriage." Number1Dickensonian has a different view, however, and posted an additional paragraph later in the day. Mark is in good company, though, Andrew Sullivan makes the same point, a bit more eloquently. After reading all this, I am still of the opinion that we, as a society, would be better to abolish the civil institution of marriage rather than defining marriage as a civil right.

The last original Canadian wolf from Yellowstone National Park was killed this week. Just thought I would mention it.

Everything is happening, but I don't feel like writing anything. I'm at the Woodfield Suites in Cincinnati, Ohio. Where's Waldo? Tug McGraw is NOT in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Go back and read this post. Neopostliberalism forever! Oh, yeah, Xanga sucks!

This looks promising

I really have to read the whole thing first, but Capital Homesteading looks very promising from the executive summary. The Capital Homestead Act Policy Goals and Elements summarizes out the key points of the Capital Homestead Act, which is the legislative implementation of Capital Homesteading. The United States has been at its best when it has undertaken broad, far-reaching, innovative programs: the original Homestead Act in the 1860's, the GI Bill in the 1940's, the space program in the 1960's. I think Capital Homesteading could springboard the United States to greatness in the 21st century.
