Puerto Rican Obama?

The Census QC training yesterday was in a community center here in the Bronx, and the walls were decorated with illustrations by local kids.

One of them was of a Puerto Rican version of our president.

ON ALMANACS

A person without an almanac is somewhat like a ship at sea without a compass;
he never knows what to do, nor when to do it.
So Mormon, others, sect & Quaker,
Buy alamancs, & pay the maker.

---Almanac for the year 1860, W.W. Phelps, Salt Lake City

BattleTech anthology cover

Just found this while wandering online -- the current (not sure if it's the final) cover for BattleTech: 25 Years of Art and Fiction, the coffee-table-book anthology that will feature some of the best BT artwork from the past 2.5 decades along with new short fiction inspired by that artwork -- including one by me, called "Three Sides to Every Story."
