Great article by Ann Leckie on swearing. If I ever got up on James Lipton’s stage and had to answer the Bernard Pivot questions, “What is your favorite word?” and “What is your favorite curse word?” would have the same answer. As some regular readers may have no doubt figured out, fuck is my favorite […]
A letter I have to send far too often…. Dear people who add folks to email lists without confirmation.
