I-90 Adds Lane For Drivers Traveling Cross-Country To Stop Woman From Marrying Wrong Man

I-90 Adds Lane For Drivers Traveling Cross-Country To Stop Woman From Marrying Wrong Man
NEWS IN BRIEF September 4, 2014
Vol 50 Issue 3

WASHINGTON—The Federal Highway Administration announced Tuesday that it will construct an additional lane along Interstate 90 to accommodate drivers traveling across the country in order to stop the woman they love from marrying the wrong man. “We want to ensure that any motorist who finds himself frantically racing along I-90 to stop a wedding at the last minute will have access to a restricted, high-speed lane to prevent his soulmate from making the biggest mistake of her life,” FHWA administrator Victor Mendez said of the new express lane, which reportedly will run the entire length of the highway, from Boston to Seattle, allowing drivers to make an impassioned, last-ditch attempt to declare their feelings to the love of their life and make sure she doesn’t end up with someone who couldn’t possibly care for her as deeply as they do. “Once construction is completed, motorists will be able to scramble into their vehicles, peel out of their driveways, and speed down I-90 unimpeded in hopes that there’s still time. We also plan to construct a number of wayside areas along the shoulder of each exit ramp that, if needed, will allow motorists to ditch their broken-down cars and make their way to the wedding venue on foot.” According to sources, the new highway lane follows a decision by the Federal Aviation Administration last month to relax safety restrictions at all U.S. airports in order to allow individuals to bypass security and run straight to their beloved’s departure gate moments before she boards an international flight.

Kim Davis makes KY lawmakers question ‘whether county clerks are worth the time and money’

Kim Davis makes KY lawmakers question ‘whether county clerks are worth the time and money’

Kim Davis wants Kentucky lawmakers to change the way county clerks issue marriage licenses — but she might not like how that plays out.

Davis returned to work Monday as Rowan County clerk after spending six days in jail for contempt of court when she refused to follow the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage.

After arriving at her office for the first time since her release last week, Davis read from a statement that indicated she would not violate a court order and interfere with her deputies — but she repeated her call for changes to state laws regarding her duties.

“While there are very many accommodations available, the very simple accommodation I have proposed is to remove my name and my title as the clerk of Rowan County completely off the marriage license,” Davis said. “These licenses can be issued under another authority, including perhaps the Commonwealth of Kentucky or Gov. (Steve) Beshear himself.”

So, either my TV's color is all off or my computer's color is all off.

I'm not sure if this should be here on in Computer Help, but it does involve looking at DU, in general.

On my computer, the background for the row of links across the top and for the part that surrounds this Message text area is blue.

On my TV, the background for the row of links and for the part that surrounds this Message text area is pink.

My question is: What color should it be? I'm thinking blue, but I just want to be sure. So, what color do you have?

Boiled Linseed Oil airing out time for rags...

I'm getting ready to treat my guitar necks. Seeing so many people talk about boiled linseed oil has made me decide to try it. I know you are supposed to lay the rags or paper towels out flat after using them with boiled linseed oil or you are supposed to put them in a canister of water, but how long do they need to be laid out flat before you can just trash them? Or do they need to go into the container with water forever? I'm confused on the timing and proper disposal. I don't want a fire. I have seen the videos. I want to know the best way to handle the paper towels before I do this.

It is just me or does the format of DU

sometimes go wonky? Like, right now, all of the lines that usually surround posts are gone and everything (all of the text links across the top and side) is all jumbled up together. Usually, when this happens, I reload the page after waiting a while and it goes back to normal. Thing is, it is happening a bit more often now and takes longer to go back to normal. It is like the page "breaks" while loading, like pictures used to do on dialup when you had a slower than cold molasses connection. I'm on broadband at an average of about 21 mbps now though. It shouldn't be doing this, I don't think.

Anyone know a surefire way to fix it without changing browsers? I'm kind of attached to Pale Moon. It works much better for everywhere else than even Firefox did, but on DU, I keep getting this weird problem.
