Woman Allegedly Hires Hit Man for Cheese etc

An anonymous correspondent sent in You should read it. The obvious moral here is that anyone stupid enough to believe that cheese is a drug worth murdering for will also hire undercover policemen to murder for it. Or something like that.

I need to close some tabs -- so, at a bit of a gallop...

Here's a spoiler-filled Reading Group guide to Anansi Boys from the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Anansi Boys is on more Best of Year lists -- Grand Rapids Press, CFQ (article in Dark Echo about how the list was made), Washington Post Book Review (did I post it already?), and is also at number one on the Locus Bestseller list.

The Endless are a band and a good one, and not just because I like their name, and I've been playing their new CD a lot recently -- is the Rain Taxi tenth anniversary auction. Some wonderful things in there.

There's a review of Noisy Outlaws etc. at the Globe and Mail. It occurs to me that one reason why it's not been getting many reviews is possibly that, with limited review space for children's books, a book with a 52 word title might simply not get mentioned because it takes up too much space.

This is my favourite ONION article in a while, partly because I suspect it may approach the truth -- Terrorist Has No Idea What To Do With All This Plutonium.

IGN are giving away a Neil Innes song for Christmas --

Thought you might be interested in this article if you hadn't seen\heard about it as of yet. Though not comic book related, this ruling in Illinois certainly gives me hope that perhaps there are still some people out there who "get it." And, certainly video games have, in many ways, garnered a bit of the same stigma as comics for some reason of late. So I figured I would pass this along for the CBLDF front. Keep fighting the good fight!

I think that's a case the CBLDF was signed onto as an amicus, and it's good news indeed.
