  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Personally I’d guess that the Dutch really, really had it hard during WW2 just based on how much taller the 3rd and 4th generations grew … plus their expanded waist sizes even though their diets and lifestyles aren’t anywhere near...
  • Commented on Writer, Interrupted
    On twitter I am RhialtoTheM. You don't need to listen to me, as I said, but being unable to follow you makes me miss out on sometimes interesting stuff, which is a pity....

    (Administrative note: logging in with Livejournal via Typepad does not work. I get an error message "An error occurred / This weblog requires commenters to pass an email address. If you would like to do so you may log in...
  • Commented on Apology
    My thought was "The Space Merchants", given that you already used "The Merchants' War" :-) Any similarity with titles of books by Frederik Pohl is of course completely coincidental....
