In cased you missed them over the weekend:

Escapement in The Washington Post [ | LiveJournal ]

Me talking about the emotional penalties of cancer [ | LiveJournal ]

tetar with a letter to the late, great Thomas Disch

The Ethics of Interstellar JourneyingCentauri Dreams bumps into a problem SF has been wrestling with for generations.

First Detailed Map of the Human Cortex — I have commented before that brain imaging studies of writers while they are in a state of writing fugue would probably be quite revealing — if nothing else for performance management. At one point I seriously suggested such a study to a friend who does research psychology, and volunteered to participate.

Studebaker Cathedral:: 1908Shorpy with another awesome image. This one borders on apocalyptic, if the Apocalypse had happened during the administration of Teddy Roosevelt.

Freakonomics on the DC gun ban — This article doesn’t align well with my opinions and beliefs about gun control, but it’s interesting, and comments on the available statistics.

McCain promises to balance budget — Hahahaha. Here’s the doozie: The McCain administration would reserve all savings from victory in the Iraq and Afghanistan operations in the fight against Islamic extremists for reducing the deficit. I’m pretty sure your average high school sophomore could spot the glaring flaw in the logic. Will anyone in conservative America even notice Mr. Straight Talk’s utter bullshit on this one? Or maybe Your Liberal Media? Nah…

I just asked for a couple copies of Escapement to be ordered for the Mid-Columbia Library. I can't wait to read it. :-)
