The summer is now an actual thing and get-togethers and parties are happening. But things will continue unabated here on OCF, the pulse of the spite filled, unforgiving, vindictive vengeful right. I’m starting to read David Reich’s book “Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past.” It goes over a lot of the same ground as Gregory Cochran’s book “The 10,000 Year Explosion: How Civilization Accelerated Human Evolution,” but from a very apologetic, politically correct, “diversity is our strength” point of view. But from of the small parts I’ve read it’s still very interesting to see the pushback he experienced. Should be instructive. I’ve got the last Majipoor book to read and the next Galaxy’s edge installment and some other sf and I’ve got some photo projects lined up. But the elephant in the room should be the DOJ IG’s report coming out this week. I’m hoping that will trigger a lot of stuff. Maybe even the end of the Mueller investigation or at least a counter-attack to take him out. So good stuff coming up.
On a more local note I’ve been intrigued by the general dearth of comments. Now this is my first blog so maybe it’s how it works but I’m curious, so I have a survey poll on it. I’ll leave it on the next few posts and I look forward to the info I get.
