From Baykeeper:

Marina Center Forum January 26th, 2009 at Wharfinger Building 6:00pm – 9:00 pm

Humboldt Baykeeper, the Northcoast Environmental Center, and the North
Group of the Sierra Club will be hosting a forum to discuss the Marina Center Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) on the 26th of January at the Wharfinger Building in Eureka from 6:00pm to 9:00 pm.

This informational forum will include presentations from a variety of experts regarding the DEIR and will act as an opportunity for the community to become educated about the environmental issues surrounding
the Marina Center project.

For more information, contact Humboldt Baykeeper at 268-8897.

My question though: when is the deadline for public input?  Isn’t that coming up really quickly?

Right here. The Post-Oil era story is at the top, then scroll down past the articles based on news in particular areas of science and you’ll see the other 99.  Stories include the search for the “God particle;” the development of an actual cloaking device; the discovery of ice on Mars; black holes giving birth to stars; the confused genealogy of the platypus making it a mammal, bird, and reptile; the endangering of the polar bear; the dead zones in the ocean; organic matter found on one of Saturn’s moons; the discovery of an ancient rat as big as a bull; a 9000-year-old milk carton;  a fossilized hobbit; and bullet proof paper.

Addendum: Another pea in a pod!  Obama is refusing to answer questions about UFOs.

Obama has invited Bishop Gene Robinson to give the opening inaugural invocation.  It’s already stirring up a new pot.

Bishop Robinson is of course the first openly gay priest to be ordained a Bishop, and elaborated upon in the links above it has led to a schism in the Episcopal Church.

Now what I’d like to see come out of it is a public exchange between Robinson and Warren.  Maybe a college debate tour.

Addendum: On homosexuality, RNC chair candidate Ken Blackwell assured everybody that he could restrain his homosexual urges if he had them, but of course wants you to know that he doesn’t have them.
