The California Supreme Court struck down the ban on same-sex marriage.

Is it mean of me to hope, just a little bit, that Scalia gets photographed soon in a passionate and unmistakeably romantic clinch with a male clerk?

I'm on a ten-minute break in a week of all-day meetings. I've got another one coming up at 3pm or so.

What's on your mind?

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
16 oz. bittersweet chocolate
1/3 cup light karo syrup
1 tsp vanilla

Heat cream to a boil. Shave/chop the chocolate blocks into tiny shards and put them in a mixing-bowl.
Pour cream into mixing bowl, stirring the chocolate as it melts. Stir until the chocolate is smooth and shiny. [NB: At this point you have a ganache.]
Mix in the karo syrup. Let stand for 3 minutes.
Mix in the vanilla. Chill, stirring occasionally, for about an hour, until thick but still spreadable.

Voilá.

...In which a deaf man fitted with a cochlear implant badgers researchers until he finds implant software that will allow him to hear -- and enjoy -- his beloved Bolero. And then?

Chorost, Michael. "My Bionic Quest for Bolero." Wired November. 2005: 144-158.

"And some music just leaves me cold: I can't even get through Kraftwerk's Tour de France. (Later, a friend tells me it's not the software -- Kraftwerk is just dull.)"
