  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism

  • Commented on Sitrep
    I grew up in Malta (apart from the eight months of the year I attended torture camp, I mean school in England). There have always been nasty vicious politics there, but I was reading Daphne Caruana Galizia’s Blog through some...

  • Commented on The Pivot
    As a Brit in NJ, one is shocked at how well paid the suburban police are, they also retire after 20 years, with great pensions As to prices, I just booked a hotel that had a hidden “resort fee” of...
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    Greg Former Governor Chris Christie, while an utter slimeball in almost every respect, did not govern NJ as an ultra-right winger. He did cancel the ARC tunnel, for his own selfish political reasons, but the consensus among the transit blogs...

    In all seriousness, the “seventeen billion dollars on a thumb drive” concept is such a hook/perfect elevator pitch that my first thought was I want to read that book. You have an excellent ability to channel other voices, force yourself...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
