Is that a legal thing to get around massage parlor laws?

Some people just have a hardon for the Koch's.

Some great ideas there. NYC does need another 20,000 teachers.

That's one way to look at it. The downside is that I have to check in from time to time to make sure my significant other is still registered to transact business with the secretary of state.

I was going to remark that I think she would be prettier and would more easliy find a good husband if she grew her hair out and wore more dresses.

But I will honor your request.

EDIT: I just googled her and I don't think my comments make much sense in light of her Wiki profile.

So Mary Cheney, the lesbian daughter of Dick Cheney, is no doubt in deep trouble. Apparently on her FB she asked why it's okay for a man to dress in drag and act out every offensive female stereotype for entertainment, but it's not okay for a white person to put on blackface for entertainment.

I guess she didn't inherit her dad's tact.

So, you're saying you're Eskimo brothers with John Kerry? High roller right here.

Excellent interview by CNN of Obama. In this interview we learn Obama does not feel radical Islam is the proper label for today's terrorists.
Quote:
President Barack Obama once again refused to label the fight against terrorism as a war on radical Islam or any kind of "religious war," insisting that such labels hurt efforts to root out radical ideologies in Muslim communities.

We also learn "who we are."
Quote:
The truth of the matter is that they can do harm. But we have the capacity to control how we respond in ways that do not undercut what's the essence of who we are. That means that we don't torture, for example, and thereby undermine our values and credibility around the world...

So from this we can infer killing civilians is part of "who we are" and that this does not undermine our values or credibility around the world.

Seriously, looking at his credentials one would assume this is a hyperintelligent guy, but he sure seems to say a lot of stupid things.

Who is the real base of anti-vaxxers? When we look at the data, the places where kids are most likely to not be vaccinated are places like California, Seattle, Vermont and Portland. It isn't the deep south religious conservatives like people are implying.

I am not going to look for it now, but one of the researchers on this gave a great quote - somthing like "if you want to look for areas where kids are not being vaccinated, look for where Whole Foods have recently opened." There is a high correlation, he said, between the organic, no-GMO, specia-flower crowd and the anti-vaccers.
