Best science blog???
Skye sez, “In the ‘Weblog Awards Best Science Blog Contest’ a psuedoscience web site denying the effect humans have on global warming is currently in the lead over real science blogs.

Assimilate or agitate? Afterward.
Utah is the poster state. Between 1990 and 2006, for example, it went from having the 38th-highest concentration of same-sex couples in the country to 14th highest. In that same time period, the percentage of gay couples who lived in large cities declined from 45% to 23%. Even more counterintuitive, from 2000 to 2006, states that banned same-sex marriage had above-average increases in the number of gay couples. And places where voter referendums went against same-sex marriages saw even larger increases.
Some of the growth in the number of openly gay couples in conservative areas could be because of migration. And yes, some on-the-barricades members of the gay rights movement have gotten older and mellower and moved out to the heartland. But the larger trend is simply that as more gays come out, they don’t need to change or assimilate to fit into the mainstream because they are already very much a part of it.
