Weekly Cool Links #15 – Protecting Marriage by Banning Divorce?

Well another two weeks have passed by and it’s once again time for my weekly cool links!  But first what’s happening in my life.  Last Saturday I had some friends come over and we watched the UCLA, Notre Dame, and USC games, let’s just say when the day was done and USC ended up beating Ohio State my day was complete.  Besides that, I went to the dentist for the first time in over 10 years (a number of different reasons why I didn’t go for so long) and fortunately for me I didn’t have any major issues with my teeth, but I did have to come in a second time for extra cleaning.  We sent to the Orange International Street Fair on the Sunday before Labor Day, I have pictures from our fun, and hopefully I’ll get those posted soon.  We are planning a trip to Ireland next year, probably some time around May, and should be purchasing our tickets any day now.  That’s about it here, so now on to the links.

2010 CA Protection of Marriage Act, someone has decided to take protecting marriage one step further by trying to get a bill on the ballot to ban marriage.  Sure it’s to poke at the Prop 8 people, but honestly, divorce ruins marriage and hurts more children then any gay marriage ever would.
