"with lilies boast"

Welcome to the world today, Ethan Marshall Curry, our new little nephew.


Quick notes:
A new community for news and updates, in the spirit of middleearthnews for Tolkien fandom and daily_snitch for Harry Potter fandom, now exists for Star Wars fandom: jedi_news.

Also, the "Talk of the Nation" program on which I appeared (re: science fiction fandom) has been blogged (with great humor) at The Great Curve.


And now, in honor of hours-old Ethan:

"But thou art fair, and at thy birth, dear boy,
Nature and Fortune join'd to make thee great:
Of Nature's gifts thou mayst with lilies boast,
And with the half-blown rose."

from "The Life and Death of King John," William Shakespeare

Congrats on the new family! Brilliant name!!!

(Stasio asked: "Do you have a question...an observation...are you a fan of some kind?" acting as if fans were some kind of alien beast it seemed).

That stood out to me too... Other when he was interviewing you or the other studio guests, I thought parts of the show were a bit insulting. The way they edited in the "man on the street" participants made them appear kind of silly. You did an amazing job of bringing it back to a place of dignity each time they came back from a call/cut.

Thank you SO much - that means a lot. That was my main goal, to try to bring some balance!
