    Garlic scapes make the most fabulous pesto. I still have some scape pesto in my freezer from last year. I made a couple of different batches. In one, I used pistachios in lieu of pine nuts and I used asiago cheese, and it was the shit!

    My garden is full of them right now but waiting until they get a little bigger.

    I used to think this fuddy-duddy just had his head up his ass. Then I see him citing this source of “news,” which is quite an epiphany as regards where he gets his inspiration. His head’s actually up Michelle Malkin’s ass.

    I am in Mccormick center for ALA. Linda posted yesterday with a link to the news that America,s public libraries are being asked to play a key role in getting out information about the new healthcare program. We have just been informed that there will be a program about this tomorrow with a live video feed from President Obama.

    My daughter ages out of my insurance next month, so I need a solution sooner than that.

    Pride weekend was last weekend in Santa Fe.

    It rained a bunch here yesterday, you could almost watch the plants grow and for a couple of hours the river was flowing. The forcast is for rain everyday for almost the whole week ahead. Everyone is hoping this is the beginning of the monsoon season. Last year it was late and didn’t start until mid July. I had read that the reservoir had 1/3 of the water it was supposed to have and if the drought continued it would run out by mid Sept.

    Sean Parker is very upset that we proles laughed at his magnificent, storybook wedding and used his gift to humanity to call him a douche canoe and other fine epithets. He now wants us all to STFU. I’ve got a feeling that he might just start the ball rolling rather than shaming all the commoners.

    Why do I feel that the article by Sean Parker will do more harm than good? It is almost as excessive as his wedding was. I still think “fantasy” weddings are childish and down right weird, whether you’re a “nerd” or not.

    How big of a narcissist do you have to be to spend the the first day of your honeymoon in Big Sur checking what everyone is saying on line about your wedding.

    Wow. My former congressman caught in his naughty bits with a paramour, Paula Deen, and this Sean Parker just don’t know that sometimes silence truly is golden. If nothing else, I’ve learned a valuable lesson. When caught doing or saying something stupid, mumble an apology and then shut up and wait for people to forget.

    Suzanne@13: I always thought claiming amnesia is a pretty good way out of almost anything. Paula Deen’s only alternative was to perjure herself and there is something to said for not doing that, when it would have been easy as Lionel Richey to just lie.

    I don’t imagine Goober-nor Snyder enjoyed reading this.

    Sherri, what a great article. I got all teary too when the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions were announced, and it was because the highest court had essentialy declared I MATTERED.

    The question is whether Michigan’s Governor Snyder actually wanted Medicare expansion. Early on he said “Right to Work (for less)” was not part of his agenda but when the Republican majorities in the legislature passed the Union busting bill he could have vetoed it, saying it was disruption in a time or meager recovery in the state. But he signed it into law. He could have done what Rick Perry in Texas did, call the legis’ back in special session again and again until the bills he wants is passed.

    Whoa! Has a would-be presidential assassin ever been paroled before?

    Those two assassination attempts against Ford proved for all time, to me at least, that presidential assassinations are pretty much random events. Against Republican presidents, anyway.

    Ford was the most innocuous empty suit ever to hold the office. Reagan, one of the most (inexplicably) well-liked, actually stopped a bullet. Yet Richard Nixon, one of the most hated, and George W. Bush, one of the least liked, never were the targets of any serious assassination attempts that I can recall. Go figure.

    I’m seeing all kinds of farmers’ market goodies I can’t get in Hawaii. So the jealousy is going the other way, for a change.
