Fun links for the day.

Nick Mamatas is smart about writing fantasy I don't often read fiction online, but after that post, I had to click on the story he linked to and read it. It's wonderful.

U.S. Justice system railroads an innocent woman on a murder charge. Two years later, the case falls apart and she's exhonerated. Good thing she's white, otherwise she'd have never gotten on TV.

Bar owner uses home-made "Bum-bot" to chase the homeless out of his neighborhood. As annoying as that bum-bot's owner sounds, I have serious doubts that it has anything like a real "water cannon" on top.

Missing dot over a letter changes meaning of word, leads to two dead and three in prison. Now I know why I never text.

Elizabeth Moon talks about the craft of writing. Interesting stuff. Sherwood Smith follows up.

For the first time since the Spanish influenza of 1918, life expectancy is falling for a significant number of American women. Hooray for U.S. Healthcare!

I should do this sort of post more often.
