Interesting Reading in the Interweb Tubes

  • I Hope My Father Dies Soon (“I’d like to proactively end his suffering and let him go out with some dignity. But my government says I can’t make that decision. Neither can his doctors. So, for all practical purposes, the government is torturing my father until he dies.”)
  • What a Real War on Christmas Looks Like (“Use whatever metaphor you’d like, but ‘war’ might be slightly melodramatic. And historically insensitive. There has been a war on Christmas before, a very real war that resulted in widespread death and dramatic change to the way people celebrated the holiday.”)

Blog Headlines of the Week

Bookish Linkage

  • I don’t know if I’m intrigued or unnerved by the concept of North Korean SF
  • A library branch in San Antonio claims to be the first book-free library (Kudos, though, to the person who commented, “A library without books is called a building”)
  • A reader gives thanks

Nonbookish Linkage
