"There is nothing so American as our national parks…. The fundamental idea behind the parks…is that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives
of all of us.”

~ President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Independent Film Movie Poster - TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE
An in-depth look at the torture practices of the United States in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, focusing on an innocent taxi driver in Afghanistan who was tortured and killed in 2002.
- Like the movies themselves, poster art for independent films can be especially beautiful and most certainly stand out from the crowd. These posters are imaginative and thoughtful while not forgetting the fundamentals such as color and typography. The result is more often than not an eye catching work of art that sparks your interest and curiosity – which is exactly what it’s supposed to do.

If our pictures of fast food haven’t totally put you off, you’re in luck: In the United States, it is never more than 145 miles to the nearest McDonald’s. And that’s in North Dakota.As you can see from the map above, you usually are a lot closer. In the east, south, and midwest, the country is basically blanketed with the Golden Arches. What I find most shocking about this map (made by Stephen Von Worley of Weather Sealed), is how perfectly the McDonald’s locations outline the country’s borders, especially the Canadian border. It’s as if they’ve figured that before you leave the country to go to some heathen otherland, the last thing you need to fortify yourself for your journey is a Big Mac.Via Kottke.

Shifting views on gay marriage

Our view: On legalizing same-sex unions, the grass roots are ahead of the politicians

May 13, 2010

To hear top elected officials talk, you’d think the prospects for legalizing same-sex marriages in Maryland anytime soon were as remote as a return to the moon. But that’s not what the state’s residents are saying. A new poll by The Washington Post has found that support for gay marriage is growing among registered voters in the state, making the issue one that the General Assembly almost inevitably will have to address during its next four-year term.

The poll, conducted May 3-6, found that registered voters favored legalizing same-sex marriages 48 percent to 43 percent. Moreover, among all state residents opinion on the issue is virtually tied, with 46 percent in favor of legalizing such unions and 44 percent opposed. That’s a marked shift from 2007, the last time The Post asked about gay marriage. At that time, only 44 percent of respondents were in favor of legalizing gay unions, with 51 percent opposed.

I think this is the “5 & Diner” at Coulter and 16th Street in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.  They make some wicked good shakes, malts, and wet fries.
