Reviews of Tor.com Story Podcast January 2010 — Including joint stories by me and kenscholes, "The Starship Mechanic" and "Looking for Truth in a Wild Blue Yonder".

10 rules for writing — And 10 more, and 10 more. Interesting reading.

You can’t resolve away climate change — More conservative political idiocy, fisked in detail by Bad Astronomy.

Losing The Future — Daniel Larison on voter demographics.

The 1956 Republican Party Platform — Fascinating reading, to see how the GOP thought in the "good old days" of American Conservatism. Not that the 1956 Democratic platform is probably any less entertaining.

An item for you:


Candidate Obama promised to respect state statutes legalizing medical marijuana. According to a 2009 poll, 72% of Americans want him to keep his word. But, a Salon article argues that the DEA isn't following orders
[ much more detail and links here]
But rather than put somebody reform-minded in charge of the DEA, Obama has nominated an anti-medical marijuana crusader, someone who aggressively raided Los Angeles cannabis clubs during her tenure there. Michele Leonhart has blocked marijuana research, overruling an administrative judge's ruling that would have permitted a researcher to grow his own plants.

Yeah, Obama was jumping his campaign sharks even before he was elected. I stopped giving money to his campaign over his vote on shielding the telecom companies.

I had a lot of hope early on, but right now I'm settling for the lesser of the evils.

If she's still a nominee rather than confirmed, there might be a chance for some action here.
