A Dozen

Posted by Scott at 11:59 PM

Good morning! A somber morning thinking about this 40th anniversary of the worst Supreme Court decision ever. Over 55 million lives lost, not even including those from The Morning After Pill and RU-486 type products. Please stop lecturing me about saving the most vulnerable as you discuss gun regulations. 9:34am

Today is also the twelfth birthday of Michael and Daniel. I can't believe that they're almost teenagers. Happy Birthday guys! Coming up soon: Timothy's tenth birthday. Double digits! 9:36am

Sunny but chilly drive down to Boxborough this morning. I listened to "The Devil, Father Of Lies" by Fr. Bill Casey on the drive down. 9:40am

Excited to learn that our SnapDragon 8960 has been chosen Best Mobile Processor by the folks at The Microprocessor Report. And that's our _previous_ generation of CPU/GPU. The LG Nexus 4 and Optimus G have our latest generations. 9:42am

Sir David Attenborough must hate me. (related story) "Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth..." 11:06am

I'm shocked, Shocked I tell ya'! "Beyoncé lip-synched Star Spangled Banner at inauguration" (related link) Like. I. Care! 12:05pm

So glad Sirius/XM buffers their streams. I have a 1pm mtg but want to hear Cardinal Dolan's talk on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. 12:48pm

Left work around six. Man! It seemed chilly out and tomorrow will be worse. Listened to a bit of Cardinal Dolan until I got into NH. My phone seems to be stopping my data when I'm roaming and Brookline, NH is definitely a roaming area with Sprint. (Later I found the setting in my phone to allow roaming data...) 7:32pm

Been doing some more RCIA prep this evening. Also discussing prom dresses with Claire and Michelle. Everyone is in bed and I should do the same. Good night all! 10:02pm
