  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Lots of todays anti-semites seem to have (or pretend to have?) no problem with Israel. It's very odd. Ain't it though? We live in interesting times....
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    I'd rate this scenario as plausible but unlikely due to there being so many moving parts (not everyone in the administration or influencing the administration are on the same page) and there being so few applicable precedents for this situation....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Very much my take on it as well. Most of it strikes me as unlikely to get much traction or likely to go disastrously if it does....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    As a Texan I can only say...can't blame you at all. It's terrifying here. I've never seen anything like this (for point of reference, I was born during the mid-sixties and don't personally remember the civil rights movement). And, as...

  • Commented on A plaintive request
    The police in the U.S. are finally starting to take online threats and harassment seriously, responding to them proactively instead of insisting they can do nothing until those threats become reality. It is unfortunate that they only made this change...
  • Commented on Towards a taxonomy of cliches in Space Opera
    Reading this really made me appreciate parts 1 and 2 of Seveneves....
  • Commented on Science-fictional shibboleths
    Before I answer, I'd like to note that the two most "throw the book at the wall" examples of supposedly-sympathetic narrator who didn't deserve any sympathy I've encountered were both memoirs. I couldn't read either Henry and June or American...
