Possibly a tiny little bit late, maybe?

So I'm still writing my Solaris review. I started off strong with two paragraphs early on today, and then hit a wall (read: got distracted reading internet articles), so now it's 11:00 p.m. and I have two paragraphs. I'm going to keep going and get this written, which won't be that hard and I've done before (and certainly I've made excuses and justifications for blog posts being late), but I'd like to start trying to warn people when my posts will be late. Which they will be. Often, if not always.

But in the mean time, since this is supposedly science fiction month, let's talk about science fiction. Science fiction has an interesting relationship with science fact, in that one is often inspired by the other, and then in turn inspires the other. So when politicians attack science, usually for idiotic religious reasons, it is bad for the future of science fiction. So for the sake of me enjoying good science fiction films in the near and distant future, sign this petition to kick a man off the U.S. House Science Committee who doesn't believe in science.
