I really hope that isn't something he can do for too much longer. After all, he does currently seem to be saying that to the whole dang country.

LIRverse AU idea: Tona lives a simple, easy life. On second thought, I know that fantasy doesn't fly in the LIRverse... :P

Most "alt-universe" versions of Tona's life have her getting remarried and settling down with her wife far, far away from all the bullshit of Scott Walker's Wisconsin. But in none of them does she have it simple or easy.

It is a reference to an article for the Atlantic that Sam Christianos is writing... we'll meet up with Sam next page.

Obviously that phrase is total hyperbole, as Tona is a natural blond.

Over in the Puck Universe, we had a long discussion leading to the conclusion that there was no such thing as natural blonds.

On the other hand, Satan is the mayor of the Canadian city of Hamilton, so your mileage may vary on that one.

There are a few of us CF types that also read Puck...

I honestly thought the title was a riff on "Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS".

Well look at the bright side Tona, judging from the marketing, you'll get a rainbow bra/tank top thing later

Let it never be said this dystopia isn't colorful

Trump's sowing the seeds of his own demise here.

Edit: I meen that in fictonal Trump in the story. Real world Trump is a whole other thing.

Were it only his demise.

Ha, my conditional either-or was right and wrong at the same time. I should've expected that Trump both wouldn't accept a no and wouldn't pay for anything.

P.S. I like the new icon. :)

There's nothing brave about punching down, and there's nothing courageous about withdrawing from the challenges of the world.

There's also something to be said for the futility of attempting to withdraw from the challenges of the world, these days.

There are many things I can do now, but it doesn't mean I should...

If you're talking about hypothetical political action I can make a suggestion for a starting point:
1) Read up on the issues, history, and organizations involved. You won't know what to do and what's achievable until you know and understand the issues well.
2) Find organizations which are already aimed at your political goal to help. Help the ones that want you to volunteer, don't give any publicity to the ones that just want your money.
3) Write physical mail letters to the relevant politicians. If you don't speak up your wishes will never be heard, let alone heeded by the people that are supposed to be your representatives and public servants.

Surprises and cliffhangers and random splash pages are great and all, but at some point the plot has to make some sense...
