Back in 1999, my good friend Aki Liao and I decided to write a novel, and that project become a fifteen year Odyssey, the end result is our novel, A Halo for Red Betsy.

One might think that a book that took fifteen years to write must be one great book, but in truth, it was simply dormant and mostly ignored for at least ten of those year (we lived close to each other when we began, and then I m... Read more of this blog post »

Sheri S. Tepper
“Boys play with death as though it were a game, cutting their teeth on daggers.”
Sheri S. Tepper, The Gate to Women's Country

Paul Krugman
“The media are desperately afraid of being accused of bias. And that's partly because there's a whole machine out there, an organized attempt to accuse them of bias whenever they say anything that the Right doesn't like. So rather than really try to report things objectively, they settle for being even-handed, which is not the same thing. One of my lines in a column—in which a number of people thought I was insulting them personally—was that if Bush said the Earth was flat, the mainstream media would have stories with the headline: 'Shape of Earth—Views Differ.' Then they'd quote some Democrats saying that it was round.”
Paul Krugman

James Madison
“The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.

[Letter objecting to the use of government land for churches, 1803]”
James Madison

William Blake
“Expect poison from the standing water.”
William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

“Extremes to the right and to the left of any political dispute are always wrong.”
