Oh my. Maybe it is my age, or the constant drone of outrage on social media, I don’t know. But I am becoming so tired of people shamelessly self-promoting themselves, especially when they wrap themselves in the moral superiority of the latest meme. Usually when it involves someone trying to patronize others by doing the human equivalent of sniffing another dog’s ass and then rolling onto their backs in a show of submission — and then jumping up to reassert themselves as the Alpha Dog of whatever social media outlet, blog, website, whatever.
It is so tiring. And it’s not real. It is so contrived.
I have made a point of keeping this website free of politics — not that anyone actually reads it anyway. I would rather focus on the stories and the art of science fiction.
But I must admit, this does give me some great character ideas.
