A Whale of a Tale
An Open Letter to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

by L.Neil Smith
In a series of novels I'm writing, called "The Ngu Family Saga", there is a character, a special favorite of mine, Julie Segovia Ngu, who writes children's books. Julie's books are anti-authoritarian, and circulate all over the 22nd century Solar System, except in places, like East America, where authoritarianism is still practiced. In such places, her books are banned, which, of course, makes them even more popular.

The Affordable Boat Act
by Unknown
The U.S. government has just passed a new law called: "The affordable boat act" declaring that every citizen MUST purchase a new boat, by April 2014. These "affordable" boats will cost an average of $54,000-$155,000 each. This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, licensing and registration fees, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs. This law has been passed, because until now, typically only wealthy and financially responsible people have been able to purchase boats. This new laws ensures that every American can now have a "affordable" boat of their own, because everyone is "entitled" to a new boat. If you purchase your boat before the end of the year, you will receive 4 "free" life jackets; not including monthly usage fees.

FaceBook Fail—with Bullets
by L. Neil Smith
Just now, FaceBook tried to shut me up. I had posted with regard to the shut-down lead refinery. Two idiots responded, one calling me an alarmist, the other claiming that that modern ammunition doesn't use lead. I replied, and offering a completely phony reason, the system wouldn't take the post on a page called "Second Amendment Samizdat". So here's what I said. Perhaps you'll pass it on...

Movie Review: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
by Jeff Fullerton
Went to see the theatrical adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel Ender's Game Friday a week ago. It turned out to be an excellent movie with a really good twist at the end which I promise not spoil for anyone who might be looking forward to seeing it. There was no spoiler for me, much to the surprise of my brother who saw it with me—I had never read it despite being a SF nut nearly all of my life. Recall first seeing it in paperback in the 1980s when I was in the Air Force stationed in California. Did not think about it much at the time as militaristic space operas are a dime a dozen and have my priorities as to what I choose to read. But over the years the novel and its sequels have garnered quite a bit of reputation. Especially among the instructors of various military service academies who highly recommend it to their cadets to encourage strategic thinking.
