Re: “Through the eyes of an 1894 Kodak Panoram No. 1

FYI -- she's not got the ONLY one operational -- I just acquired one from a friend collector/user. We figured out how to load it with 120 film (a 620 spool work, but respooling it on 105 spools also works nicely if you have any) and I'm currently figuring out how far off-angle the viewfinder is from what the lens is looking at.

Mine is a Panoram 1, Model D, made sometime between 1914 and 1926, and seems to work well when the operator figures out what he's doing. Mine still has the original leather, too, in pretty good cosmetic shape all said.

Re: “Mad Max rides into the West

Mad Max: Fury Road, was nothing but another brainwashing exercise, dressed in the usual attention deficit disorder genre of today's movie media.

Do not be told what to think. Think and act according to your own experiences/values.

Re: “Take pride: Same-sex marriage is finally legal everywhere

I'M STILL WAITING: Texas Pastor Says He Will Set Himself On Fire In Protest Over Gay Marriage

The pastor made the bold declaration during a conference call with a former Virginia GOP politician that he would rather burn himself to death than sanction same-sex marriage.

Re: “Road Trip Hike - Hankins Pass

This was an amazing hike! Not just the hike, but the drive, too. We ate at the pizza place at Lake George. The drive was just beautiful, offering just about everything. And the hike was absolutely one of my top hikes. Ever! Thank you, Bob!

An Evangelical Pastor At His First Pride Parade- his sign read:

"As a Christian I AM SORRY for the narrow-minded, judgmental, deceptive, manipulative actions of those who denied rights & equality to so many in the name of God."

Re: “New Colorado research says no negative impact on children of same-sex couples

guruD, I apologize.

I thought you and OldCrank were commenting on the article about scientific research.

Of course the reactionary heads will explode over a Supreme Court decision! My bad.

Really, Mr K? California Judge Throws Out Ballot Initiative Calling For Execution Of Gay People

I think my joy in this issue is justified after a lifetime of bigotry and bullying.

Re: “New Colorado research says no negative impact on children of same-sex couples

Let's not get carried away! I am sure all the ignorant reactionaries will smugly dismiss this report as just one more example of scientific mumbo-jumbo--like global warming--and then all the liberal heads will start exploding. As Boris Badenoff once said in a commercial for the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, "Never underestimate the powers of a schnook!"

Re: “New Colorado research says no negative impact on children of same-sex couples

An Evangelical Pastor At His First Pride Parade

I have long affirmed an inclusive theology, believing that our gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer friends, their families and allies should be fully welcomed in our churches. I affirmed their role in leadership, whether it was volunteering at events, teaching Bible study, staffing our children's ministry or helping to serve communion. I have affirmed the LGBTQ community at the highest levels and most mundane levels of church participation, for two reasons: 1) I am convinced beyond a doubt God loves each and every part of us as we are created, including our sexual identities, and 2) we're a new church  -- it requires all hands on deck. You want to come out on an incredible summer day and help make lemonade and stack chairs? You're in.

Re: “Mike Miles resigns in Dallas

I went to harrison high school from 04 to 08 worst years ever in school years becasue his policy and rules and teachings he brought in that were ridiculous. He is disrespectful, rude, inconsiderate. We do not want him back in the springs. I will move out of city so my girls aren't in the schools that he overseas, i will find a school that actually teaches you something and give a damn that you do learn something.

Re: “Mike Miles resigns in Dallas

Thousands of us in Dallas are ecstatic to see Mr. Miles leave. The gap between the percentage of Dallas ISD students who pass all the statewide tests they take and the percentage of Texas students who pass all statewide tests has grown over 60 since 2013 when that achievement gap was only 8 percentage points. That gap is now up to 13 percentage points!

Like in Colorado Spring, our senior classes are shrinking. The Class of 2015 may be the smallest graduation class in over 4 years. The data is gathering. See what Dallas students have suffered since 2012 at http://www.dallaisd.us .

Re: “Mike Miles resigns in Dallas

"...the whole reform play book, but achieved none of his goals. ..."

Sounds like the Koch Bros-funded schemes to "improve" schools has failed there too, as it is failing in Douglas and Jefferson counties here.

The "improvement" the Kochs seek is to destroy public employee unions, which we've seen here when Mayor Botch fired the city garage mechanics and replaced them with contract workers from a British firm with ties to a city council members. Such nice guys, eh.
