Does Current Canon Law Hold That Permanent Deacons Must Abstain From Marital Relations?

Canon lawyer extraordinaire Ed Peters says "yes." He has a fascinating and persuasive article arguing so here. The American Papist has a summary and a roundup of the various reactions to Peters's article here. What do you think?

Maybe No Jackson Labs At Ave Maria Town?

That's what the Naples News says.
Barron Collier Cos. has withdrawn its offer to donate 50 acres to Jackson Laboratory for a genetics research expansion in Collier County, effectively sealing the fate of the controversial project on the heels of Jackson’s decision to look elsewhere.
It seems that Jackson Labs has started discussions with the University of South Florida to open their facility on a campus of the university.

I'm sure that the Ave Maria deal fell through because of the resistance in Collier County to the price tag, but I wonder whether Jackson Labs sees an additional benefit in affiliating itself with a school that won't raise future questions with some of Jackson Labs's bioethical positions.

UPDATE: Offensive and off-topic comments got out of hand and were deleted.
