"...mild-mannered, stating-it-as-fact fanatics of the left who dominate the media..."

Orson Scott Card, quoted in this LA Times piece on apocalyptic conservative science fiction.

This is wrong on so many levels I don't know where to begin, except to remind myself that the First Amendment belongs to everyone, even those people who want to take it away from me by judging my opinions treasonous.

Card makes me ashamed of science fiction.

Fly, fly, fly free

Taking off for DFW at oh dark thirty tomorrow. Should be out well ahead of the next winter storm here in Omaha (ahem), we'll see. There's a reason I take the first flight of the day, people.

Weather permitting and the creek don't rise, I get into PDX around midday. My ride has fallen through, so I'll be cabbing it home for a nap and a realtor meeting at 3 pm in connection with the sale of Rancho Lake. I'm being social tomorrow night, which will be very nice.

the_child has a big Do Jump performance Sunday, so there's that to look forward to. I need to wrap up a couple of shorts, and I figure I'll jump into Black Tulip around the end of next week.
