[links] Link salad judges a book when it's over

My collection from Subterranean Press, The Sky That Wraps, is shipping

Star Wars propaganda posters — Wow. (I may have linked these before, if so, my apologies for the re-run.)

Interstellar Archaeology on the Galactic Scale — Deep skiffy stuff. Absolutely a must-read if you're a hard SF writer or fan.

The Stag: 1938Shorpy with a photo of historic Omaha. My usual hotel there is a tad nicer.

Pornography in hospitals — This is both serious and hilarious. Not exactly worksafe, though it is covering medical and social issues rather than prurience.

Stephen Colbert testifies before Congress, in character — Rep. Lamar Smith (R.-TX) thanks Colbert for his support of the Republican Pledge to America. How strange is this? We live in the Max Headroom future.

O'Donnell wonders why Monkeys aren't still evolving into Humans — More conservative "thought". And these people get elected...

?otD: What's your favorite book cover art?

Body movement: Brief suburban walking (post-op haze)
Hours slept: 9.5 (interrupted)
This morning's weigh-in: 235.4
Yesterday's chemo/postiop stress index: 7/10 (post-op pain, fatigue, peripheral neuropathy)
