myriad universes

the hits keep coming...

Peter Quentin of Dreamwatch's Total Sci-Fi site has reviewed Star Trek: Myriad Universes: Echoes and Refractions.

Here's what he said about A Gutted World:
Keith DeCandido's version of Deep Space Nine, without Deep Space Nine itself, is relentlessly downbeat, with even normally optimistic characters forced into decisions that they would much prefer not to make. It's a tribute to DeCandido that the various captains’ (and others’) decisions seem perfectly within character, even as the galaxy falls apart around them. Recommended, albeit depressing.

Yeah, that about sums it up. *chuckle*

putting our money where Palin's foot is

Got this from ferragus, who got it from a poster on the Firedoglake blog.

Instead of us all sending around more emails about how horrible Governor Palin is, let's all make a donation to Planned Parenthood.

In Sarah Palin's name.

And here's the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name, they'll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor.

Here's the link to the Planned Parenthood website.

You'll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the "in Sarah Palin's honor" card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters, which is:

McCain for President
1235 S. Clark St., 1st fl.
Arlington, VA 22202


P.S.: Make sure you use that link above or choose the pulldown of Donate--Honorary or Memorial Donations, not the regular "Donate Online."
