Some interesting tools for writers. He starts out with the more pricy ones, but there's some free apps thrown in there.
Foz Meadows deconstructs the Tony Harris asshat sexist post and followup defenses pretty well. Yeah. What she said. (Grokked from John Scalzi)
Rogue planet finally observed. Although in this case, it is more like a failed star that didn't gather enough mass to ignite. But then, it's not so different from Jupiter. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
The Windows 95 tip tumblr. Hahahahaha. (Grokked from Chuck Wendig)
Nah, I'm sure your comments about, "Were'd all these black folk at the polls come from," wasn't racists at all. As someone who lives in my own rural small town, there are all types of people in town that most people never run in to. Even if they go to the post office every day. There's at least 3 distinct populations in this town of 2000. And if you've never been to the gas statin after midnight, you're missing one of them. If you haven't ridden with your local police, you're missing another. And I can tell you, several of the lifers in town don't know about them.
"According to CNN, most Republican members of the Senate committee in charge of investigating the (Benghazi) attacks were absent from the classified briefing, which was led by Obama administration officials on Wednesday." I'm sorry Sen. McCain, but if you miss the classified briefing, as did most of your GOP colleagues, you don't get to harp on the issue anymore. Seriously, this is an unforced error. If you want to pretend about how upset you are, you don't miss the classified briefing. You're a tool. Please go away.
Oh fuck off, Romney. You're 15 minutes are up. As to your quote, "The former Republican nominee said Obama followed 'a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they’ll vote for you.'" Yeah, I'm so glad all those billionaires who gave you money and funded the SuperPACs that supported you won't be getting "your vote" because you're not in office. This is the break between the mentality of the rich and the rest of us. Bobby Jindal not withstanding, more of the rank and file GOP believe Romney's position.
Yeah, the GOP just didn't get it. Seriously, after the shellacking the GOP took in the press over their War on Women and they're balking on the Violence Against Women Act?
Tweet of my heart: @dcurtisj: You want to hear about gifts to minorities? Let's talk about deep tax breaks for the richest 1% of your population.
