Thoughts triggered by AP headlines in today’s San Francisco Chronicle

Random stuff:

First the celebrations, now the reality:  how does gay marriage affect the business of life in New York state?  I know I’m what my husband calls a “hen” (i.e., a worrier), but I would have thought about these things before passing the legislation.  Legislate in haste, repent in leisure.

I think it’s now official that as many people have died from organic food as died at Chernobyl.

The big question as I see it is whether Chavez had time to solidify his totalitarian takeover.  Are enough systems in place for the tyranny to function without him, or was it a one man business that dies when he dies?
