[links] Link salad, "I aten't dead yet" edition

I recently pointed to this commentary which concerned Mainspring Powell's | Amazon ]. I posted in haste — as casacorona quite correctly points out, that's not a review so much as a rather interesting essay which takes Mainspring as its starting point.

Another reader reaction to Mainspring

One of my Orycon critiquees speaks up, rather bravely — Props to him.

The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming — (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Irrational Men — The Angry Black Woman (a/k/a ktempest) riffs on some recent harsh comments of mine concerning religion. We have a exchange of views in comments on her post. Worth the read if you're interested in racism or secularism.

E-Paper Comes Alive

The real Max Headroom — 20 minutes into the future and still counting.

Nerf sniper rifle — :: wants ::

[travel] Southbound again

We're loading up two cars in an hour or so and heading down to Galveston. Mom and Dad will be picking up lillypond and the Niece at the airport in Houston as they pass through. lasirenadolce, the_child and I will be opening up the beach house. Also, we're stopping at Woody's. Mmm, jerky.

(Still have the Cold, but it's on the backside of ugly.)
