WTFery at GR

GoodReads' PTB have lost their collective minds.  And in banned books week in the US.

What could be more ironic?

In honor of events, a few of my favorite censorship quotes:

"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it." - Mark Twain

"Censorship of anything, at any time, in any place, on whatever pretense, has always been and always will be the last resort of the boob and the bigot." - Eugene O'Neill

"When truth is replaced by silence, the silence is a lie." - Yevgeny Yevtushenko


It's snowing!

Sticking to trees and grass, but I doubt it'll last long.  Very pretty while it lasts, though.

They must be pretty desperate for members if they've taken to spamming people's email.  I've gotten unsolicited *spam* from them every day this week.  Also there is no protocol for not getting their emails without joining their service first; how tacky.

Fabulous Birthday

I had a truly great birthday.

My mother's feeling a little better (she started chemotherapy this week, and had a tough Thursday).  Out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants with family and friends. 

And I got a Kindle!
