I’ve been almost wholly AFK for a bit, due to feeling even worse than usual. I’ll be entering “make-up posts” tonight to catch up. Usually, I’d do them in order, but this one is too topical for that. I realize that McCain has claimed to have already won the presidential debates tonight. Wow, his truthiness is […]

I was reading Eileen Wilks’ novel Tempting Danger and mostly enjoying it, until I hit one of the sex scenes.
