Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.

By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..

My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.

So the line's been down since June 30, 2003. ATT&T finally showed up to look at it. In the middle of a thunderstorm. So whatev. I'm all limping around to let him back there and have to apologize for the way I'm dressed, which is fairly heinous, since I just had surgery. And maybe I should have expected him since CLECO said Tuesday night that AT&T might be around. But why show up after a decade during a storm? I'm amazed the dude didn't get electrocuted. Did he fix it? Don't know, don't care. We had to bail on ATT&T a long time ago. But evidently the new neighbors with all the vans and the drug helicopters that have already flown over three times since their arrival have complained about the lack of AT&Tage. Seems like AT&T could have just waited those folks out. But maybe the vans are innocent and the helicopters are back to check out the hummingbird weeds in my yard. They come down low enough -- about removed my head the other day.


So now the big reveal is that Bradley Manning is not in fact Brianna Manning but Chelsea Manning? TBH I thought Brianna was a stupid name anyway but whatever floats your boat.

The whole thing's ridiculous as far as I'm concerned. I would have let Manning off with time served, a dishonorable discharge, and can't work at places with government contracts again. 35 years is stupid. It just gives people like Snowden an easy decision. Time served would make them have to seriously consider trying to cut a deal. That's poker 101. Don't hand your opponent an easy decision. Give them a chance to make a mistake.
