The government needs to get out of the marrying business. Marriage should be a religious arrangement. Continuous lengthy cohabitation should, absent a contract to the contrary, be a default contract laying out certain rights as would a common-law marriage. Apart from that, the government should have nothing to say.

The controversy over gay marriage should be a lesson to everyone who wants the government to do more in society. Every disagreement comes a reason for political unrest.

The more government interference in civil society, the less civilized and the less peaceful the society.

31.64 km 103792.16 feet 19.66 mi 8187.00 seconds 136.45 minutes 2.27 hours 8.64 mi/hr

Rode into town to teach Lance Myler how to solder his pipe organ. He has a church-sized pipe organ with at least six banks of pipes. The old console used relays and was getting unreliable.

Also ran into Brent and Rebecca, friends who have moved back into town.

Tried to get Mike Walters (the weenie) to come for a ride with me, but he (the weenie) had to eat dinner. Weenie!
