|Marijuana use and shrinking brains...
Recently a study came out by the Center for BrainHealth at the University of Texas in Dallas about marijuana use and the association with a smaller orbital frontal cortex. They found that the ...
|Kansas fracking and earthquakes
Map of Kansas oil and gas wells, superimposed upon a geological map of the region, with the epicenter of the earthquake marked. Kansas had an earthquake yesterday on a Richter scale of 4.8. Like ...
|Want Texans to vote? Fix the health insurance industry.
Pretty simple, folks. Texans have had a really hard time this year, especially those on Aetna. The Affordable Care Act forced Aetna to get rid of a lot of the high-risk crappy plans, which is great. ...
|Definitions: agnostic vs. atheist, morality vs. altruism
You know the XKCD cartoon that has a guy typing furiously away on his keyboard while his wife is saying "Come to bed." He replies "I can't. Something is wrong with the Internet." Well, something is ...
|The one thing wrong with Michael Brown's autopsy diagram.
This was all I could think of as I stared at that picture. Sorry if you think it's offensive. I do too. I think everything about this disaster in Ferguson is offensive. Just to clarify - I ...
|Just a little rant about Aetna...
I can't go on enough about how much Aetna sucks. Since I've been on the bronze plan this year, I have to go through a $4,000 deductible before Aetna will pay any of my pharmacy costs. Much of my ...
|Update: Jennifer, can you help this month? Why I'm sick of this money drive.
I have to say that my enthusiasm for political activism is seriously dampened when I get a e-mail like this. Dear Jennifer, I've been keeping an eye on the numbers coming in this month. Here's ...
|Ten reasons to invite more natural gas into your home? You must be joking.
Found this on Motley Fool - guess I shouldn't be surprised by now at the garbage that passes for interest-story journalism these days. America's energy boom has unlocked abundant sources of ...
|Managed health care gets you dead.
Since most of the other health care reform provisions have not been delayed, several aspects of our existing plans would still need to be changed for 2014 to meet the new federal requirements. In ...
|Wendy Davis stands between Texas women and abortion ban
Hadn't seen this diaried yet. Wendy Davis will be filibustering SB5, a bill being pushed through by Texas legislators during a special session called by Rick Perry. This is the bill that limits ...
|Fix the House with a lottery system.
I propose that we change the way we select representatives to serve in the House of Representatives. Instead of filling it with duly elected people from each state, why not make it like jury duty?
|Red meat flags
Considering how knee-jerk reactionary the Republican party is to anything that the Democrats suggest, why don't we fight for more drastic goals? This will keep them busy and off balance, rushing ...
|Maslow's hierarchy of needs: safety first
Just a quick diary to put down some thoughts. We will need a different kind of house - one that can stand up to our new reality. Weather is becoming harsher and more dangerous. Our basic needs - ...
|Curiouser and curiouser: some speculation about what the rover found.
Mars, raw feed, Sol 100, from the ChemCam. I am only an amateur biologist and an amateur geologist. What I've done the most of is hiking through Big Bend National Park, and what I see in these ...
|Migration and adaptation in Texas: surviving the future
Changing weather patterns are forcing us to find new homes. We have to relocate our farms, or find new ways to farm with limited resources. Survival of the human race means that we have to adapt, ...
|Texas Democrats: Implement the ACA, Already!
Just received this in my inbox via MoveOn.org. We are organizing a Non-Profit Organization called Texans for the Implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The Organization will be founded to: 1. ...
|I am an atheist.
Atheists really don't care whether you believe in a deity or not. At least I don't. However you want to deal with your universe, that's fine by me. It doesn't reflect upon your intelligence, unless ...
|Gabrielle Giffords, and the horror of aphasia
Listening to Gabrielle Giffords speak today made me cry, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. It also reminded me how horrible it is not to be able to speak coherently. It's a nightmare to be ...
|Occupy FW: Officer under review for striking protester
This pleases me. Last Thursday, a Fort Worth police officer (R. Frias) struck a protester (Anthony Momentoff) with a flag, after claiming that the protester had hit him with it. Here's the ...
|Protester hit with flag: Occupy FW
This is just crazy. One of the protesters in Fort Worth has been assaulted with a US flag. Then he's charged with assault against a police officer. Our own small occupation is apparently large ...
|50 State Strategy - what about Texas?
For those of us stuck in Texas, we feel abandoned and forgotten. It's like the rest of the country has said "Well, you live in Texas. You deserve what you get." What we get are lower wages than ...
|KosAbility: Working and Multiple Sclerosis
KosAbility is a community diary series posted at 5 PM ET every Sunday and Wednesday by volunteer diarists. This is a gathering place for people who are living with disabilities, who love ...
|Rainbow Lounge settlement reached
We have our own little gay bar here in Fort Worth, and it's called the Rainbow Lounge. Those of you who know Fort Worth know that it's not exactly a tolerant sort of town. It's not intolerant, but ...
|To our next president: It's the food, stupid.
I've been a Michael Pollan fan since I read "The Omnivore's Dilemna." So I was thrilled to see that he's written an open letter to the next president of the United States, addressing our greatest ...
|Obama Campaign: Target This Demographic!
Okay, so I live here in Texas, and work the afternoon shift. I see a lot of commercials between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. I have not seen ONE Obama commercial. However, I have seen several McCain ...
|George W. Bush Library
Somebody sent me the plans for the upcoming George W. Bush Presidential Library... boy, they sure sound official! Compliments of the Southwest Missouri Libertarian Party. The George W Bush ...
|Lawyers asked to make torture sound legal
This may not be breaking news, but I was pleased to see this [http://www.mcclatchydc.com/detainees/story/38886.html story] make it into the MSM. Ever wondered how the U.S. justified torturing ...
|Chuck Hagel for Veep?
just a quick diary - haven't seen this mentioned yet... I was watching Leno last night, with Arianna Huffington as guest. When asked who Obama would choose for VP, she first said Jeff Foxworthy - ...
|"How To Rig An Election"
Too bad this won't be out in time for Christmas. It would make a great present for your favorite Republican neocon. "How to Rig an Election: Confessions of a Republican Operative," by Allen Raymond,
|Bush Porn Portrait
What better way to portray our nation's president? This is a spectacular portrait done by collaging pieces of photos from porn magazines. [http://www.katize.com/2007/08/29/bush-porn-picture/ ...
|Who to blame for lead in Chinese toys? Take a guess.
Just saw this on the McClatchy news site - sorry if it's been posted before. The long and short of it is that the Bush administration is responsible for the poor product quality coming out of China.
|Stop talking about Bill O'Reilly!
Remember the bit in Peter Pan when Tinker Bell is dying, and she tells Peter if all the little kids clap their hands, it'll save her? I feel like that about Bill. Every time we talk about him, he ...

For those of you who use a wheelchair, or know somebody who needs one, Medicare is planning to allow the lowest bidder to provide complex power wheelchairs and seating systems. We all know what ...
