"war is bad, governments are wrong, and people are dumb brutes"

Happy Tuesday! I have a few links to share:

TV and Film

* io9 lists "The 45 Coolest Moments in Doctor Who's History."

* It Doesn't Have to Be Right lists "Top Ten Obscure SF Films." (Some of these were new to me. I'm not as enthusiastic about Natural City, but I recommend Until the End of the World.)


Literature

* From Joseph Bottum of First Things: "Children's Books, Lost and Found."

* From Jill Lepore of The New Yorker: "The Lion and the Mouse: The Battle that Reshaped Children's Literature."

* Also, I have updated my working lists of dystopian fiction. Recommendations and suggestions are welcome!

And a quote for the day:

The Book of Merlyn by T.H. White (Ultra Condensed)
Merlyn: You're not going to die yet, Arthur. I still have to teach you that war is bad, governments are wrong, and people are dumb brutes.
(He does.)
