The brilliant Daniel Abraham muses on what it means to be a genre

Scrivener's Error on, among other things, the most recent closure of Realms of Fantasy

Solar eclipse, from space — Wow.

The Economic Argumentxkcd is damned clever. Single best piece of New Age debunking I've ever seen.

Why Does Abu Dhabi Own All of Chicago's Parking Meters? — Yet another example of the conservative fetish for privatization gone terribly wrong.

US military accepts openly gay recruits'Don't ask, don't tell' policy suffers another blow, but activists still warn applicants not to reveal sexuality. Oh, noes, teh gayz are running the world now! Or just maybe, life will go on as normal.

Christine O'Donnell's church and state gaffe makes voters laugh — Self-proclaimed Consitutional expert and Republican senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell unfamiliar with First Amendment. Which pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the Tea Party right there. Daniel Larison has more.

?otD: Frida or Diego?

Well...xkcd may want to back that train up slightly, to judge by reports that the military at least experiments with all manner of things including psychics, and to judge by the all bottles at some of the health food places, capitalism IS making a homeopathy killing.

Read the alt text: Not to be confused with 'making money selling this stuff to OTHER people who think it works', which corporate accountants and actuaries have zero problems with.

Which is not on the page I'm seeing. I do see where the algorithm killed Jesus, though. Darn algorithm.

I find it hard to take the Scriverner's Error article seriously, since they got numerous facts about the basic makeup of Realms and its contents wrong. Sigh.

And I adore the picture book bio of her, illustrated in her style of art. It's titled Frida, appropriately enough.

>>Christine O'Donnell's church and state gaffe makes voters laugh<<

Not to worry. O'Donnell supporters will just do what Palin supporters constantly did through the 2008 election: Claim liberal media entrapment.
