[info]talekyn reviews my book The Specific Gravity of Grief

Another review of METAtropolis: Cascadia

An interview with me and Cherie Priest on the Wizards of the Coast site — By Christopher Dinkins & Jeremy Jones.

A Dog I Did Know — Chris Johnson with a short, emotionally intense story.

Goodbye to all that — Roger Ebert with a very moving personal meditation on the social costs of cancer in his life.

FOX News Insider: "Stuff Is Just Made Up" — Also, this just in: sun rises in east, liberal conspiracy suspected. But it's fair and balanced!

How Anti-Jihadists Lose All Credibility — But hysteria sells air time and buys votes so much better than facts.

US Chamber’s Lobbyists Solicited Hackers To Sabotage Unions, Smear Chamber's Political Opponents — When you can't win on ideas, lie, obfuscate, fear-monger and cheat. That's been the great lesson of modern Republican politics, and the US Chamber of Commerce has certainly taken it to heart.

Insurance reality hits House GOP — Sadly funny. I was struck by this passing remark at the end of the piece, though: Regardless of lawmakers' reasons for accepting or declining federal health benefits, Gardner said the decision shouldn’t be used for political potshots. Right. Because no Republican has ever taken political potshots at a Democrat for personal decisions they made.

?otD: Saganaki or bananas foster?

This is the same network, as you may know, that had a Florida affiliate win a lawsuit in which they stated they had a First Amendment right to distort the truth.

Never had the former, but I'm a Big Fan of the latter. In fact, after sampling same at Palace Grill (an awesome restaurant in Santa Barbie), I declared I could give up sex for it. Oh, lotsa back-story here - ask sometime and I'll share... Suffice it to say that nowadays both BF & sex together (or in close proximity) would totally rock my world.

It's a closeup of the warning sign on the bbq trailer of the late, lamented Big Daddy's on Hawthorne.

Thanks for linking to Chris Johnson's essay (which I would not have otherwise seen) and for pointing out Roger Ebert's essay (which I would have gotten to eventually). Both, very moving.
