My Yuletide story was the completely obvious Restrike, a Mildred Ames - Anna to the Infinite Power story (Rowan/Anna).  It was a delight to be asked to write, in essence, idfic because [personal profile] hesychasm’s requests tracked my preferences so exactly.

Republican Angry at Trillion-Dollar-Coin Solution: “There turns out to be no serious economic or legal argument against the platinum coins…. The main drawback is that it’s hilarious….

Here’s the wikipedia entry for a somewhat timely Asimov story, Franchise.  I was surprised at how many of the Asimov stories from that period I still remembered.  Someday gave me chills as a kid.  (In other tech/politics news, I am also obsessively reading stories about the failure of Romney's Orca.  Successful computer programs are made of people!)

Genderbending fantasy, book magic, Terry Pratchett does many worlds )
Sweded movies and the end of Hollywood as we know it: You have to spot author Ben Walters the omission of other fan cultures and the apocalyptic rhetoric; there’s still some interesting stuff here.

Really good essay on The Dark Knight: “Also, let’s not forget that calling Batman ‘fascist’ is a little like accusing the Pope of being catholic, or hinting darkly that a particular bear may have, at some point in its life, shit in the woods.”

I … don’t actually trust an email from Joe Biden that says “trust me—you’ll have fun.”
