Shared Worlds Presents…A Fantastic Bestiary — A whole bunch of writerfolk offer monsters to a summer writng school, including yours truly. Check it out. (Thansk to @mattstaggs.)

The Reject-o-MaticThere's never been an easier way to reject a friend, an enemy, or a frenemy. (Via Andrew Wheeler.)

SDO: The Extreme Ultraviolet Sun — A pretty nifty image from APOD.

Commemorating CHM: The Jourdon Anderson Edition — Nineteenth Century Freedman snark at its finest. That's the world the Republican Party celebrates and wants to return to &mdash the glorious days od States' Rights and the South. They just like to pretend that slavery wasn't really a big deal.

Road rage suspect reportedly found dead in home — Thank god for the NRA. Without their vigorous defense of untramelled Second Amendment rights (background checks at gun shows are for socialists!) this man might have been reduced to only throwing Gatorade bottles instead of actually shooting people.

Technical difficulties at the Supreme Court — This is spooky. Really odd how ill informed they are about basic modern life. (Thanks to David Goldman.)

I suspect a dialect :) ala sarcosis/psychosis in Synecdoce, NY...

My online New Oxford American Dictionary sez:
angina |anˈjīnə|
vagina |vəˈjīnə|

If you go on to read the comments section of that post about the Supreme Court, you'll find that the quote were taken out of context and that it is the blogger who understands less about the Court than the justices understand about technology.

We need someone to introduce a bill in the Arizona legislature requiring proof of citizenship or legal immigration status to buy guns.

I was very happy to have a gun on hand to shoot a moose that charged me when I was a kid and another time to back down a pair of guys who were intent on breaking into our cabin while my parents were away. So, yep, thank Ruger and the 2nd amendment.
