This week we start with Lando's sleep issues, then we chat a bit about difficulty of reading The Odyssey. That leads us to a small discussion of The Thing, and then a recent find by Lando of a great little sci-fi story called Gallagher's Ice. The ice gives way to some left field porn we each have found, and then back to literature for a little bit on the 70s sci-fi habit of keeping detail to a minimum. From there we jump through the purity of violence, offensive humor, and why forgetting history might not always be bad. Finally, we ponder whether true patriotism is dead in America. Enjoy!

Thanks Ben. I have seen that. Cory Doctorow\\\'s Flickr has a pretty neat photo of his writing area, and its just a wall of books. I love it. Although, I have to say, Gaiman has probably one of the most impressive collections I have seen in a very long time. My book collection suddenly feels so small...and flaccid lol. Do a search for that cathedral that got turned into a bookstore, it\\\'s beautiful.

He\'s probably seen this already. But might be more fodder for a fture Lando show.

Also kudos on all the content this past week.
