This weekend, activists in Uganda - a country where homosexuality is punishable by death - held their first Pride. 
This is the epitome of courage. I have no other words.

We’ll probably never know how many women inventors there were. That’s because in the early years of the United States, a woman could not get a patent in her own name. A patent is considered a kind of property, and until the late 1800s laws forbade women in most states from owning property or entering into legal agreements in their own names. Instead, a woman’s property would be in the name of her father or husband.

For example, many people believe that Sybilla Masters was the first American woman inventor. In 1712 she developed a new corn mill, but was denied a patent because she was a woman. Three years later the patent was filed successfully in her husband’s name.

Holiday

It’s July 4.  I have the day off from work.  And I’m not sure if I’m glad that I have the day off because I would’ve been too depressed to go anyway, or that I’m depressed because I have the day off from work and am left to my own designs.

So what do I do?  I stand in the kitchen, while it’s 102 outside, crying to Tori Amos’s Marys of the Sea while cutting strawberries.

Happy [In]dependence Day

The angle and single figure up against the menacing dragon remind me of the Tiananmen Square protester.
