Indiana's RFRA and Walkerton, IN

So, it has been nearly a week since this pizza place (Memories Pizza) in Walkerton, IN that raised all sorts of stink about saying they would not cater a gay wedding if someone wanted them to.  Just some points:

  • There was very little chance of them every catering a gay wedding in Walkerton. There is not a large gay population in Walkerton (if any).
  • No self respecting gay couple would cater their wedding with pizza.
  • The ultra nut jobs from the left and right have predictable gone off the deep end with their threats, diatribes, and support of the crazies on their side.

 

Random thoughts for a Friday night?

Some random thoughts that have come up while hanging around the house one Friday night:
  • With Justice Souter retiring, we get all sorts of names as possible replacements.  One name that I heard on TV tonight was former President Bill Clinton.  Wouldn't that be the judicial equivalent of putting John Dillinger in charge of the FDIC?
  • Though I doubt this will happen, will President Obama nominate someone who will interpret the Constitution primarily, and not try to be a legislator from the bench.
  • The White House has its own Twitter account @whitehouse.  Does this mean we can tweet the President with ideas to improve the country?  Or will it be spin doctoring in 140 characters or less?
  • Why does it feel we are not getting a full story with regards to the swine...(errrr, I mean the A/H1N1) flu?  We have the WHO saying that there are only about 330 confirmed cases, but they have raised the pandemic level to 5 (out of 6), and the attributed death toll by the WHO is low.  Something just does not seem to add up.
  • Which virus will end up getting more hype - Swine Flu or Conficker?
  • Why is Ashton Kutcher the top person followed on Twitter?  I thought he was just Demi Moore's boy toy husband.
  • Looking forward to seeing the new Star Trek movie.  Hope it turns out at good as the previews and hype seem to portray it.
  • Favorite conspiracy theory podcast - No Agenda.  Adam Curry is just full of them, with John C. Dvorak trying to rein him in.
  • Interesting new video podcast - Fox's Freedom Watch.  Online program with Judge Andrew Napolitano as the host.  Chock full of Libertarian-mined individuals, and free market economists.  The show brings up some scary instances of attacks on people's liberty in the name on security.
  • I love this time of year in Florida.  Not too hot, cool evenings, and lots of sun.  Perfect golfing weather.
