A reader reacts to Mainspring

The Science Fiction Foundation Criticism Masterclass — A forthcoming opportunity for those residing in or visiting the UK. (Via fjm.)

World Wide Words — English from a British point of view. (Via GH.)

Vivian Maier - Her Discovered Work — A fascinating view into a forgotten outsider photographer and her vision of the American street. (Thanks to scarlettina.)

In Battle Over Health Law, Math Cuts Both Ways — That is to say, in politics you are entitled to your own facts. (Thanks to my dad.)

The Arizona tragedy — A counterpoint to the rhetorical concerns raised by many people, including myself, regarding the recent shootings. I find the dismissal of the impact of conservative eliminationist rhetoric more than a bit facile, but much of this column's point stands. (Thanks to ericjamesstone.)

Scalepecunium makes an interesting and saddening point about the local impact of the Giffords shooting. Which ties in with this post on Making Light. (Thanks to lt260.)
