Gallup Poll

Six in ten Americans say President Barack Obama's historic shift to embrace same-sex marriage won't affect how they vote in November, according to a new USA Today/Gallup poll. Still, more independents said the move made them "less likely" to vote for him than "more likely," Gallup said, making the decision a "net minus" for the president.

The survey found that 51 percent approve of the president's new position, while 45 percent said they disapproved. Among independents, his move won out by a margin of 53 percent to 44 percent.
Overall, 26 percent of respondents said they're were now less likely to vote for Obama, while 13 percent said they were more likely to do so. Among independents, 11 percent said they were more likely to vote for him, 63 percent said it made no difference, and 23 percent said they were less likely to do so.
"Those figures suggest Obama's gay marriage position is likely to cost him more independent and Democratic votes than he would gain in independent and Republican votes, clearly indicating that his new position is more of a net minus than a net plus for him," Gallup said.
"However, those figures also underscore that it is a relatively limited group of voters--about one in three independents and fewer than one in 10 Republicans or Democrats--whose votes may change as a result of Obama's new stance on gay marriage," the organization's Jeffrey M. Jones said in his write-up of the survey.

Saturn

Camera: Canon Powershot sd1000. May 5th Supermoon.
Canon Powershot sd1000 shooting afocally (tripod holding the camera close to the telescope eyepiece) on Burgess 5" f8 Refractor.
Notice one of Saturn's moons above. Notice the colors, a result of the colors being bent to different points of focus. A really good telescope would correct for this. But it looks neat.
A different moon to the left.
Dramatic colors.

Arjun



“Have the mothers of earth stopped giving birth to brave men?”
“Is there an archer (who can accomplish this)? Is there?!”
Drona: “Yudhishtira, what do you see?”
Yudhishtira: “Ten mango trees, three Bo-trees and one Audumbar tree.”
Drona: “Move aside! Arjun…?”
Arjun: “My eye sees only the eye of the bird, teacher.”
Drona: “Then release the arrow!”
“If you have to break the Pandavas, then first attack… Arjun!”
Draupadi: “Give me your word – that you will take vengeance for my humiliation from all the Kauravas!”
“Create the chakravyuha (circular formation)!”
Drona: “Get ready for battle!”
“Forget about victory and defeat – focus on action and you will fear nothing.”

Skies

Sometimes the best skies are seen while driving. It can be difficult to fish the camera out of the bag and take good photos while navigating I-275 or I-40, but it must be done. Here are some of those results, as well as some from outside the car (the first 5).
