Is anyone here from Detroit?
I'm pretty sure this libertarian article
about the "awesome" effect public service cuts have had in Detroit is a whitewash. Is there anyone from Detroit or who is familiar with Detroit who cares to deconstruct it for me?

Government at work?
The filibuster by my Texas State Senator, Wendy Davis, to stop an anti-abortion bill, is in peril. It is currently being ruled whether her filibuster violated Senate rules. The link goes to a live feed. High drama at times (although they are talking off-mic at the moment).

anyone into martial arts I've been watching some MMA and I find it very remarkable how unintuitive the submission wrestling moves are. Which is an interesting twist on technique vs strength in physical combat. Seems like a skilled grappler can easily break bones on a much stronger unskilled opponent as long as they can get them on the ground.

When your lavender bed becomes a deathbed

These are the first strawberries
I've gotten from my strawberry bed this season, and this is the first rhubarb
. Silly thing to want to show off, perhaps, but it took two plantings to get a rhubarb bed going in my garden, and three before the strawberry patch took.

Interesting to see what cats are up to all day. And I am not really a "cat person" (though I do like other people's cats just don't care to have one of my very own).

Do the Tighten Up
I'd post the song, but let us bask in the Clooney-born ridiculousness for a moment.

I wonder if you could modify your mind state
