RIP Freddie & Wolferl

[originally written Friday night] All through the end of November I kept thinking “there is some date I should be remembering around now”.
I remembered tonight – it was the anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death. 🙁 24th November 1991. And Mozart died today, 200 years before Freddie – 5th December 1791. More »


Glass half empty

Alabama voters on Tuesday [NB: Nov 2000!] repealed the state’s century-old ban against interracial marriage, an unenforceable but embarrassing throwback to the state’s segregationist past.
The vote was running 59 percent to 41 percent, with 58 percent of the voted counted.

This means that 41% of voters in Alabama eight years ago voted against interracial marriage (even if the law by that time was ineffectual). While this is “the minority” (less than 50%), and the law was thrown out, it’s not really “a minority” – it is more than 2 in 5 people. It’s really not that far from half of them.

Of course with only 58% of the votes counted this may not have been entirely representative, esp. with urban precincts likely reporting later. I couldn’t find any final results during my quick googling. Still it’s probably not that far off and… well yeah. Kinda sad. Despite Obama.
