If it’s Thursday, it’s Field Intelligence Report day! Freakydoll put the finishing touches on v.17.0 – she cranked up the Good, True & Beautiful Particle Detectors, calibrated the Ya Gotta Be Kidding Me Wave Analyzer to a reading of 0.03 (that’s about as low as you can get), and converged the Trumpification and Clintonizer Scales to a zero phase, filtering out all the election noise.
v.17.0’s headline piece is the rest of the story concerning the 12-year old Iraqi boy strapped with an explosive device, who turned himself in to authorities. It’s compelling to say the least. Freakydoll strolled the literary path somewhat, with a post covering three book reviews, an essay from esteemed author John C Wright on the state of sci-fi in the 21st century, and a new Dr Who cookbook. Allonsy!! And be sure to check out the new on-line group for moms, The Zelie Group. Plus a whole lot more to inform and inspire!
