A rather nice review of Pinion in Analog

io9.com includes my forthcoming collection The Sky That Wraps in their list of "All the books you'll be lusting for this fall season"

Never Wake Up: The Meaning and Secret of Inception — Some interesting analysis here. Partially dovetails with the take that calendula_witch and I are developing. (Thanks to goulo.)

Pulsar Timing: An Outer System Tool — This is some seriously weird science. And cool as all get-out.

The End of ManagementCorporate bureaucracy is becoming obsolete. Why managers should act like venture capitalists.

Why do pundits think Bush regularly attended church? — He didn't. Neither did that conservative saint, Ronald Reagan. Obviously Reagan was a secret Muslim!

Stewart: Fox Smears Owner Alwaleed bin Talal! — Hah!

Covert OperationsThe billionaire brothers who are waging a war against Obama. And the Right gets its panties in a wad over George Soros... (Via danjite.)

What are the Republicans trying to hide behind the Ground Zero Mosque? — Not sure I buy this, but it's an interesting argument, and not the least bit out of character for the party of Atwater, Ailes and Rove.

The GOP and the “Ground Zero” Mosque — The Cato Institute weighs on rank political opportunism by Republicans. See Competing Perspectives on the Mosque Controversy for more.

The GOP's Long, Hot, Racist Summer — Ah yes, nothing like standing on your principles to make your point.

?otD: What forthcoming books are you lusting for?

There is no "Ground Zero" "Mosque." There is a potential "Ground Zero" Islamic Community Center, which is further away from Ground Zero than an existing mosque.

An existing mosque is just that an existing mosque. THe fact that no one is protesting that mosque shows you that this is not about religious freedom.

This is about ground zero. And yes that entire area is GROUND ZERO.

Bullshit! If the entire area is ground zero, then there is already a mosque at ground zero. And the new building isn't a mosque anyway, it is a community center. And the fact that your only post on your livejournal page calls for the conversion of anyone involved in the community center to Christianity (or perhaps "Judeaism" just shows you don't care about religious freedom.

And another article on the Park51 Project (Islamic Community Center) from the NY Times and worthy of a place on The Daily Show.
