A reader reacts to Green Powell's | Amazon | Kindle | Barnes & Noble | Borders ] — So does scarlettina, here.

Part three of "Chain of Stars" is live at Subterranean — My steampunk astronaut story.

The behavior of antibubbles — Wow. Who knew?

In comments on yesterday's Link Salad, ericjamesstone and pnh say some interesting things about presidents and media bias.

Rush, the Rams and Righteous Conservatives — A little history, from the memory hole, about politicization of sports franchises. Ah, intellectual consistency, that backbone of conservative discourse.

mckitterick writes Verdict: Forced to die alone. Crime: Gay. — If you're a conservative, go read this, then come back and tell me why you're ok with this. If you're not ok with this, then tell me why you support the conservative movement. This is not isolated weirdness, these are the consequences of your beliefs — the relentless conservative drumbeat for marginalization and criminalization of gay Americans, along with "conscience laws" that allow medical professionals to deny treatment according to their religious prejudices, combine to legitimize these kinds of cruel, inhumane decisions.

I don't know how a conservative could answer that article, athough I suspect it would sound like what I hear when I get into an argument with gun rights advocates about the huge number of gun deaths in this country, how so many of them are accidental shootings of children, how there are vanishingly few incidents of people successfully protecting themselves with guns, etc. The gun rights advocates retreat into high sounding principles of indidvidual freedoms and the American character that blithely ignores the price of the rhetoric.
