  • Subject line spotted on Queensway on the way in to school today. No, no relation whatsoever to the random miscellany in this entry.

  • Must post pix of Barney the Beaver. Possibly tomorrow.

  • How old would you say Alan Rickman is? (Whodat? Probably currently best known as Snape on Harry Potter movies, though that's certainly not his biggest role evah.) No peeking at IMdB; take a wild guess as to his age.

  • Countdown to Chris' final exams: 7 weeks

  • Distance from ideal weight: 17 pounds

  • Distance from realistic ideal weight: 7 pounds

  • I love Sarah. For many reasons, not the least of which is that she writes posts like this one: Small Town Esso and the Aha Moment about Medieval Marriage.

  • Must post new pix of Jacob.

  • CivPro? Dull As Dirt. Even when taught by one of the funniest profs at Ottawa U. And yet I kind of like it; it appeals to my plodding, methodical Inner Worker Ant.

  • There's this meme. It's silly. It's cute. And it goes like this: If you make up titles for stories I didn't write, I will respond with details of those non-written stories. (If you'd like to include details you'd like, pairings or fandom or something, do that too.)

Link from [livejournal.com profile] snarkhunter: South Dakota passes abortion ban.

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota (Reuters) - South Dakota became the first U.S. state to pass a law banning abortion in virtually all cases, with the intention of forcing the Supreme Court to reconsider its 1973 decision legalizing the procedure.

The law, which would punish doctors who perform the operation with a five-year prison term and a $5,000 fine, awaits the signature of Republican Gov. Michael Rounds and people on both sides of the issue say he is unlikely to veto it.


The South Dakota law concludes that life begins at conception based on medical advances over the past three decades.

Proposed amendments to the law to create exceptions to specifically protect the health of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest, were voted down. Also defeated was an amendment to put the proposal in the hands of voters.

The bill as written does make an exception if the fetus dies during a doctor's attempt to save the mother's life.
