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.
