      day/month/year makes more sense than month/day/year. The first is in order of unit length, whereas the latter is pure yank chaos.

        For file naming conventions, year/mo/day makes more sense, where you start the filename YYYY-MM-DD-filename.

          This makes things easier to find, for sure. Start with the unit of largest granularity and work down.

                Because great is not normal, right? Right? Why are you rolling your eyes?

                  I'd say it's weird rather than great.

                        But that takes away all the chance for confusion. What is the fun in that?

                          As a regular (if not always proud) reader of Charisma I can confirm it is oriented towards us, and even has "shock" articles where the author brings up more cessationist claims about for example tongues and the author "exposes" the "rediculousness" of those beliefs. But it is where I get most of my Christian news.

                            This will now go to a Jury for resolution.

                            Source: Houston Chronicle

                            A state district judge ruled Tuesday that the lawsuit surrounding the city's embattled equal rights ordinance will go before a jury trial rather than a bench trial, a decision that conservative opponents of the law are hailing as a major victory.

                            Critics suing the city over its equal rights ordinance had been pushing for the case to go before a jury, a move Mayor Annise Parker's administration said was not in compliance with state election law.

                            Judge Robert Schaffer issued a brief decision late Tuesday afternoon, one week before the trial is set to begin. Schaffer's order denied the city's request for a bench trial, a response to the plaintiffs' earlier filing for a jury trial.

                              As the conservative opponents are well aware (and make this abundently clear), the question isn't whether the ordinance is legal, but rather whether it is popular. After all, the ordinance applies at the very most to a small handful of people, who already have enough problems. The change from a bench trial to a jury trial effectively causes the ordinance to hinge on the jury selection process, rather than anything particularly legal. And any competent lawyer can find a dozen pro-discrimination conservatives in Houston.

                              After which the ordinance will be tossed out, and this small handful of unfortunate people won't be any worse off than ever. And few people in Houston will ever meet anyone who has ever met anyone who knows anyone who knows any of the people the ordinance applied to anyway. This whole kerfuffle has nothing to do with them.

                                Actually no, the question is whether enough votes were gathered for possible repealing of it, at least ballotting such a possibility as far as I understand it. Nobody disputes that its unpopular in that region, it clearly wasn't by the activity its generated.

                                After all, the ordinance applies at the very most to a small handful of people, who already have enough problems.
                                Actually the ordinance applies to everyone, since it changes the definition of what's required for you to be present in public bathrooms of a particular gender indentificate. I do have quite a bit sympathy for transgenders, even as a traditional catholic, perhaps far more than you realise. However I think that this ordinance could have been better, and since its been opened as wide as possible, all but making public bathrooms unisex, there are legitimate questions to ask about it.

                                Since it applies to all bathrooms, it applies to quite a few people.

                                The same could be said for Anisse Parker just happening to find a person to review the evidence who'd end the court in her favor.
