alfreda89: (Blankenship Reeds)
An article over in The Atlantic asks the question -- We all know there are deal breakers in our search for The Right One. Is Religion one of those deal-breakers? Should it be?

It was for me. I realized that I could marry someone of another faith, but only if he respected my right to believe what I believed. Yet kids I'd met who were raised between two very different faiths usually ended up believing in neither.

Hard choices. Hard decisions. I know someone who was a devout Calvinist who married a Catholic, and loved her so much he agreed to let their children be raised Catholic. His family is still appalled, I imagine, although she is the most wonderful person you could imagine.

It hasn't changed much since the 1840s. It was designed to be acceptable -- just barely -- in hopes of discouraging promiscuity. We have spent millions, billions trying to find a cure for AIDs, much less any other sexually transmitted disease. Why no money for condom research?

The writer of this article asks Why??

How lovely! Someone uploaded this over at Weather Underground.

Here's a definition.

It's snowing in various parts of the Hill Country today.

Have some recent Norway auroras.

Does anyone know how fast the northern lights tend to move? I always thought it took hours for them to undulate across the sky, but watching this five minute shot, I got the feeling that even standing out there only 10-15 minutes, you might still see change.

Warning -- this has a loud, pulsing soundtrack.
