In horrifying news, there’s been another shooting, this one at the Capital Gazette newspaper office in Annapolis, Maryland. There are multiple fatalities. It would be irresponsible to ascribe a motive, but it is worth noting that the President obviously has consistently referred to the press as an enemy of America, and that Milo Yiannopoulos said earlier this week, “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.” Our thoughts, prayers, and vigorous support for gun reforms go out to the victims.

Mrs Smith reviewed two speculative fiction books together because they are both set in Canada, both award winners, and the authors "have appeared together on panels to discuss their work, where they are often likely to discuss human/robot sex." Madeline Ashby’s Company Town (Sunburst Award) and Annalee Newitz’ Autonomous (Lambda Literary Award) take on futures where humans are augmented mechanically or pharmaceutically. Do you see a future with augmented humans? (Cannonball Read 10)
