[links] Link salad asks where did you come from, where did you go?

Excellent discussion of my short story, “Over the Walls of Eden”, on the DrabbleCast discussion forum — (Thanks to .)

Pat Rothfuss is raising money for Project Heifer — Go play along. He’s raffling off naming rights to a character in his next novel. (Via Ben Simons.)

8 days and 3,700 miles — An artist’s journey from New Hampshire to Oregon.

Andrew Wheeler has the quote of the week — Marginally not safe for work, and funny as hell. Ah, England.

Gunboat Diplomacy: 1905Shorpy with some history.

Ass bombing — Prophylactic terrorism. (Thanks, I think, to .)

Democracy Corps: Republican Base Voters Living In Another World — Fascinating piece on a liberal-progressive study of the Republican base and the cherished convictions which seem so lunatic to anyone who isn’t a strong conservative. Conservatives see themselves as an oppressed minority, holding on to knowledge that isn’t represented in the wider media and culture. (Obviously, read with the appropriate grain of salt given the source, but this sure hits all my confirmation biases.)

    Regarding the supposed anal bomb thing, as if it wasn’t bad enough that we’re no longer allowed to take liquids onto planes, are forced to take our shoes off at some airports, that Amsterdam airport now uses X-ray full body scanners (never mind that X-rays aren’t exactly healthy) and that I had some security person riffling through my spare underpants and sanitary supplies, because my ancient mobile apparently had set off his scanner, now someone wants to put plane passengers through body cavity scans, too, because of yet another phantom threat.

    I’ve already suspended all travel to the US, until your country stops treating all visitors like potential criminals. If airport security mania gets even worse, I’m going to have to forego air travel altogether.

    As for Cotton Eye Joe, would you believe I just heard that song on the radio today?
