The question is: why were these stories underreported? There’s a story in there, I can feel it.
In other news, I’m over my writers’ block. Well, my editing block, anyway. I’ve gone back to working on The Tachyon People, and I’d like to take a look at The People of the Earth this week as well.
With all the news lately, I think SF is circling the drain. The chances of us getting a person to Mars, a colony on the Moon, Star Trek, etc., are becoming so small with the way we’ve wasted the resources of this planet that SF is more like fantasy than real science. Perhaps I’m still in a bit of a funk, but I fail to see the point of writing SF until there’s an actual chance that what I write could happen.
