Lois Tilton reviews the current issue of Realms of Fantasy for Locus Online — Including my story "The Fall of the Moon".

Hot Tub Planet — Intelligent design, indeed. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

Burlington Zephyr: 1939 — Mmm, linestreaming. Speaking of design...

Hundreds of thousands of centenarians go missing in JapanJapan's Justice Ministry said Friday that more than 230,000 centenarians are missing and probably dead. Family neglect and corruption are factors.

Gay Marriage Destroys Civilization Itself (Again!) — Ah, the rational, measured tones of conservative rhetoric.

Engineering Terror — Why do so many right wing terrorists (both Islamic and Christian) come from engineering backgrounds? The nominal question may be a statistical artifact, but I was struck at the contrast the article drew between extremist movements that look to a perfected past and those that look to a perfected future. (Via goulo and willyumtx.)

Top Ways 9/11 Broke Islamic LawEvery time Americans tear down Islam, Bin Laden gets a little bit of what he wanted. Thank you, GOP.

Dangers of Americanism — Some sadly wishful thinking from the usually clear-minded conservative commentator Daniel Larison about the allegedly minimal role of Christianists in the modern GOP. Reminds me of a conservative friend back in the Moral Majority days who argued passionately that the Religious Right was a fabrication of the liberal media. Considering Republicans have been riding that horse hard since their post-Nixon comeback (it's 2/3s of "God, guns and gays"), that's a ridiculous assertion on the face of the facts.
