Could not agree more. The whole point of BLM is that we all assume, correctly, that lives matter, the problem is that black lives are lost at an unjustified rate due to police shootings and incarceration, therefore the reminder Black Lives Matter too. All else is just semantics.

Thank you Mr. Breathed and GoComics. Much more convenient than having to go to the dreaded Privacy Eating Facebook Conglomerate.
I think that with the advent of Bloom County 2015 I am finally beginning to accet that Breathed is not just an alias for Garry Trudeau, which was my original idea when BC first appeared. (Although Doonesbury is on hiatus, hmmm?)

Given Trump’s own painted on tan, shouldn’t it be Make America Orange?

They recently finished showing the Bloom County’s complete run and now are showing Outland from the beginning of its run. Of course BC 2015 is available on its facebook page, no membership required to view.

I always thought the last two books were the best, where Herbert really got the balance between action and philosophy right. The second and fourth book are a bit challenging to read but worth the effort. As for the best Sci Fi books I think I would have to add Neuromancer by William Gibson, the book that computer engineers read and loved in the early 80s so they then went about creating the future of the Internet in the model set forth by Gibson.
I could not disagree more, the last three books of the original 6 book series are particularly insightful about genetic engineering. And of course the commentary on environmentalism that is thread throughout the books is as relevant today as it was when first published. The movie was a mess, but a glorious one. Much better is the 2000 miniseries starring Alec Newman. But the books are best as always. Perhaps a little more dense than your typical space opera so maybe a bit more challenging to read, but well worth the effort.
Jason may not have summoned the worm, as it appears Paige is using a “thumper.”

Burn a lot of bridges and you might end up on an island, alone.

Definitely a shout out to Walt Kelly’s classic Pogo strip. Kelly typically used the names of friends on the boats that Pogo and others used to fish in the swamp. Pogo was the forerunner of Bloom County and Doonesbury and other political strips and is often referenced in more modern strips including Calvin and Hobbes’ wild sled rides. I urge people to read Pogo the complete run of which is slowly being published in gorgeous hardback volumes.
