Reading Today

posted by on March 23 at 10:00 AM

(Zombie Jesus image from New World Odour.)

Apparently, Christ has risen again, for like the three billionth time—I owe you fifty bucks, Pastor Mike, but I’ll get you next year!—and so a lot of bookstores are taking the day off from readings, though many are still open for the modern heathen’s browsing pleasure.

Norwescon, the science-fiction convention, is still going on in SeaTac today, though, with a number of readers like Leah Cutler and Caitlin Kittredge and the ever-delightful Roberta Gregory, who does Bitchy Bitch comics for Fantagraphics, which are some of my all-time favorite comic books. I will be liveblogging from Norwescon today, the final day of the convention, from 10 to 6.

Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, here.

Wow! What a hoot-a zombie Jesus. Slog entertainment value 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. here's a news tidbit for your Slogger amusement.

BAGHDAD (AP) (3-22-08)-- A suicide car bomber penetrated tight security to strike an Iraqi military base on Sunday in the deadliest of a series of attacks that killed at least 42 people across Iraq. In Baghdad, the U.S.-protected Green Zone came under heavy fire by rockets or mortar rounds.

Seven people also were killed and 14 wounded in a suicide car bombing in the Shiite area of Shula in the capital.

As Dan said in his argument for this war:

But wait! Taking out Saddam means dropping bombs, and dropping bombs only creates more terrorists!

"That's the lefty argument du jour, and a lot of squish-brains are falling for it, but it's not an argument that the historical record supports. The United States dropped a hell of a lot of bombs on Serbia, Panama, Grenada, Vietnam, Germany, Japan, and Italy. If dropping bombs creates terrorists, where are all the German terrorists? Or the Italian terrorists? Or the Vietnamese terrorists?"

Zombie Jesus. Love it!

It's actually less scary than the baby-with-white-Jesus photography that Dan Slogged yesterday. Now that scared me. *shiver*

Agreed, SDA. At least a "zombie Jesus" has some tenuous plausibility.

But, the goyishem Yeshua? Em, not so much.

General word of advice:

Never tell a child that Jesus died, and was reborn three days later as the Easter Bunny. They invariably repeat it, and you're the one who gets in trouble.
