No Means Force

http://davehingsburger.blogspot.nl/2014/07/no-means-force.html
With thanks (if “thanks” is really the word in this case) to Theresa Nielsen Hayden for a link to this post in the “TNH’s Particles” column at the indispensable Making Light: http://nielsenhayden.com/makinglight/

Speaking as a parent, I am literally (not just figuratively) nauseated.

FW: call it steampunk

  • K****:
  • Reginald Pikedevant is quite correct, vacuum tubes are not SteamPunk. They are Dieselpunk: http://airboy-davy-nelson.tumblr.com/
  • And then there's Transistorpunk: http://transistorpunkstyle.tumblr.com/
  • SteamPunk
  • is fantasy fiction which attempts to recreate the feeling of living in
  • the exciting, fast-moving world of the Victorian era. And no, you can't just glue some gears on it and call it SteamPunk.
  • DieselPunk is fantasy fiction which attempts to recreate the feeling of living in the uneasy world of the early-20th Century period of the World Wars and between.
  • TransistorPunk is fantasy fiction which seeks to recreate the feeling of living in the frightening and innovative period of the Cold War.
  • All of this derives from Cyberpunk, which is fantasy fiction which attempts to recreate the feeling of being a computer programmer in the 1980s.
  • We got you covered, punk.
  • - Love, John

President Barack Obama’s unpopular health care law is losing some of its
 political punch as vulnerable Democrats see it as less of an 
election-year minus and Republicans increasingly talk about fixing it 
instead of repealing.

Or to put it another way:

instead of repealing.

FTFY, Donna Cassata.

Oh, and also: called it.  Called it back in 2009.
