*sigh*

While I'm glad to see F&SF mag finally trying Web-only publishing, can't say as much for their choice of content, unfortunately. I hope someone does support them for trying it, but that column's not something that makes me feel very warm and fuzzy about subscribing, or submitting, for that matter. Pretty much the opposite. If I'm pointedly not welcome at your country club, I'm not sure I feel the need to help with the greens fees.

holy COW

I'm watching a piece on a guy whose job is removing killer bees and I can tell you one thing -- I am never setting foot in Arizona again, because apparently it's full of bees, giant centipedes, black widow spiders, and scorpions. Wait, now they have introduced drug dealers and illegal aliens as a menace. Maybe this is a little over the top.

I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute. -Rebecca West

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be. -Kurt Vonnegut

Okay, I'll stop now. It just seemed particularly fitting.
