So, Dilbert has a blog now

Or, well, Scott Adams does. It's here. It includes an entry about putting a Dilbert strip through an approval committee, which reminds me vaguely of censoring and sanitizing Fahrenheit 451.

Quote about the blog from the newsletter which I appreciated just because... Well, I love self-snark above all other kinds of snark. The man who can snark on himself has my respect.

"When I see news stories about people all over the world who are experiencing hardships, I worry about them, and I rack my brain wondering how I can make a difference. So I decided to start my own blog. That way I won't have time to think about other people."

I just got most of the way through a long, philosophical post about why some books don't work for me, and I somehow or other moved the mouse, clicked on back... don't ask me how... and then ended up back at my main journal page. Everything I wrote... gone.

I'm too annoyed with myself to do the whole thing again now. Maybe later. Meanwhile, I'll just write about what happened to be my interest when I so rudely interrupted myself: the emotional throughline.

Shades, Chapter Eight: Interlude (2): Charity, pt. 3

Remus is back with the wild wolves, and they've gathered for transformation. Over the month, he's bonded with some of Greyback's "pups," and he notices that Greyback is very, very suspicious of this. Greyback instructs him to send the pups to him (Greyback) if they have questions about pack life; answers are to come from him, not Remus. To Remus's disgust, Greyback takes personal pride in the wolfish accomplishments his "pups"--including Remus--have under their belts.

The sun is setting; the moon is rising.
