My post #1 on this topic. I said: The DNA poop test would be for the purpose of pinpointing “the source of wayward excrement” on the condominium property. Don’t just blame the state – look to the pedestrian tyrants around you who desire to turn your world into an Orwellian nightmare to serve their need [...]
When I made this post about the “poop nazis” at a condo in Baltimore, I knew that some libertarians would jump the gun, and I exactly predicted their letters to me. In summary, a small group of people who like to empower themselves are trying to force people who live in the condo complex to [...]
News from an overbearing condominium complex in Baltimore: Under the proposal, every dog at Scarlett Place and guest dogs would be swabbed for a DNA sample — owners would then have to pay $50 each to cover the test and supplies.

From an article in the Washington Post: Beginning Friday, shoppers in search of toothpaste, deodorant and laxatives at more than 6,000 drugstores across the nation will be able to pick up something new: a test to scan their genes for a propensity for Alzheimer’s disease, breast [...]
I have no idea who B-Boy Super Inlight is, but apparently he is a real food enthusiast who put together this song video to “use hip Hop culture, as a way of inspiring different types of people to eat healthy.” I like the reference to the “lies and scandals” of the government’s food pyramid.

Here are some photos I was uploading to my photo site. I have a new gallery open – “Just Stuff” – at my SmugMug photography page.
I had a couple of recent posts on the organ donor issue: #1 here, and #2 here. I received an interesting comment on my blog, and an email, from Kidney Mama, who sent a link to this post on her blog. Donation cards are not the answer for kidney transplants, and here’s why (Thanks to [...]
