Another Sunday has arrived, with an extra hour thrown in just for fun. I have no more excuses for blowing off my weekly collection of links (the cat’s still dead, story’s submitted, and day-job deadlines have been met), so let’s see what the Internet held this past week.
And just as an administrative note: I don’t engage with trolls; I delete them with no small amount of glee. If you’re going to comment with random insults in response to a contest that ended several days ago, in the trash you go. Buh-bye.
On to this week’s links…
A Fan Letter to Certain Conservative Politicians
John Scalzi’s Swiftian masterpiece: a fan letter from a rapist to all the rape-friendly politicians out there. Heavy trigger warning, but it really puts the anti-choice argument into perspective.
Let Go and Begin (Again)
A Thousand Shades of Gray’s thought on meditation and the loss of her dog. This really hit home for me this week.
Elephants Never Forget
I had never heard of Lawrence Anthony before reading ellisnelson’s post about him and the elephants who came to say their goodbyes. What an amazing man. (And what amazing critters)
Book Review – Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version
I really want to read this.
