commented on Will Trump Kill Legal Weed?
When Prohibition was enacted, the alcohol industry (manufacture, retail, saloons) was the 5th largest industry in the United States. Moralists don't give a shit about profits.

If this is true
" It centers on a picture-perfect family that is turned upside down when the youngest son comes out of the closet. What seems like the end of their idyllic life turns out to be the beginning of a bright new chapter when everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real."
Then it is NOT about our family. Hah! "Picture perfect"? only with a very wide angle lens, or one of those old Civil War cameras. everyone be very still . . . .

commented on Ireland to Vote on Marriage Equality
When I studied abroad in Ireland in 1983, you (ahem) had to go to a Protestant chemist to purchase condoms. And while divorce was illegal, separated couples lived with what my best pal in Dublin (also my mom's best childhood friend) called "Distended families." The Ex, the Ex's new partner, their kids, your kids, all the kids. The Irish love children. Complex arrangements like that open the road towards marriage equality, even while many will resist legalizing abortion.
