In case you missed it yesterday, the Green cover from Dan Dos Santos via Irene Gallo at Tor is awesome [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

This is the last full day of the post-novel ennui contest [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — I’ll be posting a voting poll sometime tomorrow. If you haven’t gotten an entry in yet for a chance to win an ARC of Green, do it now.

Where does the GOP go from here? — ABC on the next steps for the Republican Party. If the GOP is serious about Sarah Palin or Bobby Jindal as potential leaders for their next few years, I don’t think their fortunes are going to improve.

Election unleashes a flood of hope worldwide — I realize that contemporary conservatives are pretty much by definition indifferent to what the rest of the world thinks, but for those of us whose view of the world does not stop at the American shore, this kind of story is very good news indeed.

Jay,

I always enjoy your link posts -- they keep me entertained, and they keep my mind busy, too.

Today I just want to say I love this photograph of you. It's a winner! Was there a wind machine involved? ;-)

Thank you!

I believe that photo was taken on a northern California beach.

Why would you want a personal jetpack when you could have a personal blimp?

Thanks for linking to the story about Luscious Garage. Before she opened the shop in SF, Carolyn Coquillette was one of my neighbors up here in Petaluma. She's good people, with a very cool dog, and I'm glad to see she's thriving.
