  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    I've been under the impression that novellas translate better to movies than books. Makes sense. One remedial reading/writing exercise I had for my middle school students (ages roughly 11-13/14) with learning disabilities was to rewrite a child's picture book as...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    For those worried about the loudmouths...remember Portland? When the rally drove through downtown and subsequently got chased out by the antifa they were hollering about? And one of their own got shot? It'll happen again if they pull that shit...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    The biggest apparently deliberately set fire was the Almeda fire in Southern Oregon, which took out the towns of Phoenix and Talent as well as part of Medford. A suspect has been arrested and there's a dead body apparently connected...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    They're sure that the fires on the US West Coast were started by Antifa (they weren't) so in some places they're stopping and questioning (at gunpoint) people who "aren't from here", even when they're wearing their press credentials. Cite, please?...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    I just remembered what Q reminds me of. A bizarre cross of (cough cough) a religion founded by a certain late SF writer, Bug Jack Barron, and the Church of the SubGenius. Only someone took SubGenius to be serious.......
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Once upon a time I actually worked for one of those private contractors, albeit not in intelligence (paralegal services, subcontracted to DOJ to defend Bonneville Power Administration in the Washington Public Power Supply System...yes, WPPSS!...suit about bond payout defaults). Y'all...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    The big challenges with snow and ice in Seattle and Portland and further down the Cascades tend to be the following: 1.) Steep hills. 2.) Wetter snow/ice that is usually around freezing, so there's often a thin layer of water...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Argh. The italics are missing from part of my quote. The section that reads: "If you *really* want to know how I feel about them, then I hope they do go, since they have more money than brains, and their...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    whitroth @ 1430: SUVs. 1. I read, almost 20 years ago, that an "unnamed Ford exec" said that the only time 90% of those SUVs go "off-road" was when the owner/driver comes home at 03:00 drunk and drives off their...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Another data point to counter OGH's assertion about the universality of cell phone access. Officially designated wilderness. I can take you to places on Mt. Hood within 50 miles of Portland, Oregon, that do not have cell access and are...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Depression is a rational response to the state of affairs today. I'm in a period between books and have tackled reorganizing my library--in part because I realized I don't know what I do and don't have in stock. All the...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    JBS @50 We are in a similar position as you. We're helping out younger family members as best as we can, but also contemplating donations to our local health care district. One of our local county commissioners has promoted the...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Just had to chime in about the Hillary stuff. I worked on Jerry Brown's Presidential campaign in 1992. About three weeks before the primary election, we had some interesting people show up at the state office (where I was the...
