My bicycle is now in storage. I'm kind of proud of myself: I biked it there despite the 109 degree heat index. 20 minutes from Swain to Winslow and Walnut, another 5 to the storage, though that's with a bit of walking and a couple of unnecessary street crossings. 316 is east side of the street in the north, but 3150 is west side in the south. Go go grid consistency! That bike leg was after first doing some shopping and errand running on bike, though those were shorter legs interrupted by A/C.

I didn't do it dry, literally: I'd soaked my head and shirt in water before setting out, and later put some wet paper towels beneath my helmet.

Have tickets to Cleveland to see a friend for a couple of days, then to London because that was $500 cheaper than flying straight to Paris and there's a train, right? Plus might be nice to get "foreign" but not "language I don't speak at all" for a bit.

* Soviet [sic] Koreans of Central Asia

Prop 8
We'll be hearing a lot more about strict scrutiny vs. rational basis review. I have to admit, I have no idea how SCOTUS would handle this. Kennedy will be the wild card on which it swings, and there's not many ways to have any kind of ruling which doesn't come down as ham-handed one way or the other.

If I was forced to guess, I reckon SCOTUS will knock down this ruling on procedural or very technical grounds. I'll be very happy to be wrong.
