    Danae has already correctly identified herself as the center of the problem. Now all she needs to do is to warn herself about herself.

    “Where’s the kaboom? There was supposed to be an Earth-shattering kaboom!” said another cartoon character in a plaintive voice.

    The best non-fiction depends on knowing something that nobody else knows, that has important consequences. We call that research. The other kind of non-fiction depends on knowing something that experts know, but your audience doesn’t know, and explaining how it matters to them. We call that popularization. Fiction depends on people getting themselves into trouble. Anybody can do that. The trick is usually to get your character into a kind of trouble that A) your audience will care about and B) you are creative enough to get them out of. Writing about insoluble problems with disastrous outcomes is called tragedy.

    I will be interested to see if Danae can get out of her problemo. She has great potential if she ever stops trying to be the center of the universe.

    Somebody suggested she try horror. How about Inside Danae’s Mind? Agoraphobia, anthropophobia, alethephobia (Fear of the outside, fear of people, fear of truth)… She could compete with unwitting horror writer Ayn Rand, who actually did write some two-dimensional movie scripts. Or maybe not. Danae does not inspire horror in anyone who knows her at home, in the neighborhood, or in school. Irritation, yes; pity, definitely.

    Every novel is Inside the Writer’s Mind, of course. It is just roomier, better lit, and better decorated inside the better writers’ minds.

    As far as we can tell, all early literature was fantasy, although when people believe the fantasy we call it mythology instead. History and science were much later inventions, although in their earliest Greek forms it is impossible to distinguish them from historical fiction and science fiction. The real things depended on working out methods for winnowing out errors, a problem we are still working on with the science and history and general reality deniers like Danae and many others who appear in the strip from time to time.

    One party enlists corporate and private wealth for purposes of enriching the wealthy and powerful and oppressing others—minorities, women, immigrants, the young, the old, scientists, Muslims, and so on, destroying civil society and the economy in the process. The other enlists corporate and private wealth for purposes of enriching he wealthy and powerful and lifting up all of those others, and building up civil society and the economy. I have no trouble choosing between them. And one day, we will lift up enough of us to vote out the corporate tools and put the corporations and the wealthy in their places.

    As President Obama has said, “Don’t boo. Organize.”

    It’s fascinating how the wind only sweeps his hair back when he wants it to.

    The Mundane culture cannot understand that we ADHDers have the superpowers of hyperfocus and inability to listen to guff, like a lot of the nonsense in our school textbooks. It is not an inability to pay attention, but a neurological imperative to pay attention only to what is important.

    The Supreme Court oral arguments on Marriage Equality are so day before yesterday. All that the bigots had left to argue was that allowing gay marriage would destroy straight marriage and be bad for the children. As though natural and adopted children of gays don’t count. Every previous argument has been tossed out as contrary to fact or amounting only to animus.
