This is just incredible. I don’t know what Eric Holder thinks, but I’ve been willing to let some other things, which may or may not have happened during his tenure at the Justice Department, a pass because sometimes people make mistakes and shit goes awry. That’s part of life.
But a few months ago the department came out with the legal justification for using drones against U.S. citizens. That gave me pause, but I wanted to see how it’s is still going to play out.
Until now. Now they are going after our ability to know what they are up to in our name. That’s unacceptable.
Mr. Holder, if you want to find the leak, you better do your search IN YOUR OWN DEPARTMENTS. You can check who does what on the inside, and not go fishing in the emails of the press. You should know better, as you should’ve about the drones. I suspect it’s time for you to resign. The job has gotten away from you, and your inability to realize that your department is not here to defend the administration, or any one person, but instead is there to protect all Americans, and yes, that’s a tough job, and it’s difficult to find the balance that actually does that very thing, but not impossible. If you can’t find it, you need to step down.
And? You. Can’t. Find. It.
Was also the only girl in the room.
And Jennie Lamere beat pros sent by the Hackathon sponsors. The only part of this story that we shouldn’t celebrate is that the guys even had teams and couldn’t come up with something better, and I’m going to guess that’s because they all share the same outlook and perspective and didn’t even think to ask anyone else. Misogyny, a disease fed by myopia.
I’ve always given preference to those who can do the work, and it’s always seems odd to others that my production teams are heavily female – especially when they find out I’m a single gay male. Well kids, it’s because I choose the best for the work, not the one I want to stare at inappropriately. Go figure.
It’s kinda hard to imagine all the amazing advances that we’ve seen so far this year. And now Delaware has joined 10 other states in affirming that marriage equality is a human right. Only 39 to go. That’s pretty ama

Many thanks to Governor Jack Markell, for stepping up and signing the bill right away, too.
Peter Rauhofer has passed from a brain tumor. He was truly one of the greats of the dancefloor, and his ability to take a ticky-tacky pop song and make it into a dance hit was unbelievable. I had the pleasure of dancing to his live mixing on a couple of occasions, and got to meet him once. He was truly a giant, and will be sorely missed.
Peter, thank you for making our dances amazing. Peace.
