Two decades after Nevada’s founders proclaimed unswerving obedience to federal authority, Cliven Bundy’s family first settled the land where he and his supporters now make their heavily armed stand against federal power.
Because same-sex marriage is illegal in Ohio, and because the Supreme Court ruling left marriage bans at the state level intact, Arthur and Obergefell couldn’t marry here. The prospect of travel was difficult because Arthur is bedridden with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, a progressive neurological disease that robs patients of their ability to walk, talk and eventually breathe.
…Maryland required only one partner to come for the license. Then a 48-hour waiting period.
It was an hour and 10-minute flight.
This might work, they decided: A destination wedding in Baltimore.
It cannot be criminal to report a crime or an abuse of power. Freedom of the Press Foundation co-founder Daniel Ellsberg argues that Snowden’s leaks could be a tipping point in America.

Though Hoefler and Frere-Jones were renowned among font enthusiasts, their popular name recognition was limited. Their abrupt, confusing split has drawn a surge of attention that has surprised their peers.
This is awesome: an Australian couple bought an abandoned French chateau and they're restoring it. Of course, because this is 2014, they've got a weblog with a ton of incredible images at Chateau Gudanes.
Milton Glaser Critiques Modern Beer Art. I agree with his appraisal of Flying Dog and I was happy to see he wasn't offended by Shiner's label. I totally agree with his opinion of Dogfish Head; I've never been impressed by any of their labeling. It always looks poorly printed and dirty.
