Rebellious girl thrust into life of slavery and lots of sex. A review of Green, by Jay Lake — A reader reacts to Green, not so much with the liking.

Say it ain't so!

America May Truly Be In Decline — Or not. Amazing how much damage the "America first", "small government", "fiscally prudent" party has done to our country and our future.
