Hope those of you that celebrate Easter had a wonderful long weekend. I haven't posted anything since before Christmas, so I figured it was time to get off my ass & blog already.

It occurred to me that I should be sharing more of the stuff here, that I generally share on Facebook. Here's an interesting article on the rash of "religious liberty" & "bathroom" bills cropping up across the US. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/zoe-dolan/the-civil-rights-struggle_b_8490982.html?ncid=engmodushpmg00000003
An interesting article on women's rights as they are reflected in public nudity laws:

And several lists of new, interesting films that have come out recently, on SXSW & other places.

I just learned something cool, did you know that we can make roads with recycled plastic?

On a somewhat sad note, the author of one of my all-time favourite books "Zen &the art of motorcycle maintenance" has passed away. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/4/26/1656487/-Robert-Pirsig-Who-Took-Us-On-Inner-Journeys-In-Zen-And-The-Art-Of-Motorcycle-Maintenance-Has-Died
