On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Linkee-poo just wants to bang on de drum all day

Catherine Schaff-Stump on being a resilient writer panel from Wiscon. Lots of good points in there.

Tobias Buckell points out Science in My Fiction Contest is now open for its second annual run.

Practical tips for writing a book. Haven't read this, yet. But it looked interesting. (can't remember who pointed this out last night, sorry)

The gas miners of Uranus. Wow. I wonder if Lando know about this? The other way to go is that how far are we away from atmosphere scoops (where the ship skims the upper atmosphere of gas giants for its fuel)? (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Well, if they can prove their case, Edwards shouldn't just lose his law license, he should go to jail. In this, the "case" is the money he used was actually campaign money. If the prosecution can't tie the money the donors gave as "political contributions," then they have no case. They could prove it to a grand jury, but can they meet the higher standards of a criminal jury?

I wonder if we can call them "Death Panels" when it only involves throwing as many people as possible off the health care rolls to reduce costs. Oh. Wait. No. It's another Republican governor doing it. It can't be "Death Panels" if it's a conservative. It must be, "Running Government Like a Business" again. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
