I'm not kidding about this. This is the most important election since FDR in 1932, 76 years ago. Another election of this importance won't happen for another full lifetime.Per a recent comments-section discussion about lousy sequels, I've been re-reading the original Frank Herbert Dune sequels, which really do get hilariously terrible by the time you get to Heretics of Dune. I mean, between the heavy-breathing one-handed reader dirty-novel sections and the insane supercrazy Ayn-Rand-style disdain for the teeming, genetically inferior masses of humanity and the looooooong segments of religiophilosophic dialogue in which interstellar mystics jockey for advantage by spouting off incoherently, for pages on end--well, as implied: hilarity ensues. Anyway, there's one point where, swear-ta-jesus, Herbert describes something called a, wait for it, hypnobong. Seriously? Yeah.
Anyway, my point is, clearly that's what they're smokin' over at the Group News Blog, cuz that is some whacky shit.
