A Game of Voter ID

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

One of the things I like about writing a blog that covers Science Fiction, Fandom, and Politics is when I get to combine the elements into a single post. Thank you George R. R. Martin for making my day. Martin, the author of A Game of Thorns, has dished out quite ...

Of #Occupy Promenade, Ice Tea, and One Percenters

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Captain's Log, Stardate, oh, wait, that's Pajama Boy stuff. It had been a while since the last time I had put into port at DS9, and was surprised to see how much things had changed, and not for the better. The Promenade had become some sort of tent city, which is ...

McKeon Says Bachmann is an Extremist

The target of choice by the ...
