Jim Hines makin' with the funny on Muses. Synchronicity wise, yesterday I was telling my boss about a poster a former professor had made up. The photo was dark and mysterious, with an old rotary desktop phone. The handset, however, was a smoking revolver. The only text said, "Deadline."
Robin D. Laws on where bad writing advice comes from. Yes, that and a bag of chips. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
Another example of living in the future, teleportation. I still want my jet pack. (Pointed to by Dan)

Only 8 more months of council-ing. I would be lying if I said that thought hadn't strummed the heart-strings the other night. There are several types of politicians. There are those who are in it for the grandstanding/narcissism/power. And then there are those who reluctantly take up the job because it has to be done/done better/corrected. Sometimes it's hard to see which is which until they're in office. Often the fiery revolutionary is the co-opted sycophant. Have I mentioned the new political committees to help the TP freshmen be connected with "the big donors"?
