January 14 Open Thread


*  A bakery in Auburn rented out its space to make an ad for a right-wing initiative in Oregon. So, apparently they couldn’t find a business in Oregon to do that?

*  CaliforniaWatch looks back at County party central committee federal election fines over the last few years. There are a bunch split between the two major parties.

*  George Skelton calls the argument that “baby-making” is the principal purpose of marriage “absurd.” He goes back and looks at the reasons for marriage and deems the logic of the argument ridiculous and rather offensive.

*  The state has raided the coffers of the recycling program, and the program is feeling the effect. It is actually in danger of collapse over the next 12 to 18 months. The governor wants to put some of the money back, but whether it is enough remains to be seen.
