It's about time. Finally.

I feel safer knowing that we now acknowlege that military members have the same level of acceptance and behavior as the rest of us.

The end of Don't Ask, Don't tell.

NJ Bike Exchange

Have a used bike cluttering up your garage? Or need a bike for yourself? I just found out about this program. It's a great idea.

The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange accepts donated used bikes which are re-conditioned by volunteers and sold. Profits go to the Trenton Boys & Girls Club's after school programs.

Places to donate your bike can be found here.

The Exchange is located at 1500 N. Olden Ave, Ewing NJ. They're open Saturdays 10-5, and Thursdays 5-8. They say you can ride the bikes to try them out before purchase, too.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Ride, all for charity. What's not to love?

Better than I could've said it: Jennifer Beck flip-flops edition

Jay Lassiter on State Senator Jennifer Beck's sudden change of heart regarding Marriage Equality:

New Jersey's new map added Asbury Park and Ocean grove to her district, transforming it overnight into (arguabley) the gayest district in New Jersey.

So, Beck's track record on equality: vote against Gay people when it matters (or when it suits her politically) but now that she wants to represent the gayest district in NJ, a sudden conversion. Go figure.

Ah, a fair weather friend. Just what everyone needs. Here in the former 12th, I say: good riddance, Senator Beck. And good luck to the folks in her new district. You're going to need it.
