    “Where are you going, Mr. Custis?” she asked. “To hell, Madam,” the colonel replied. “Drive on,” she said. “Any place is better than Arlington.”

    I mean, sure, Arlington is an irritating place, but c’mon…

    Not only did they make Ursula skinny and uninteresting (believe me, the animators had far more fun animating her than Ariel), they also removed her tentacles. Bah!

    I can’t really imagine how would the production even try to rationalise Ursula’s “Transcendental change”.

    DC Comics “reduced” one of their most interesting women of color last year, Amanda Waller. She was previously a plus size middle aged woman, now with their “relaunch” the character is young and “sexy”. Seriously, wtf?

    The artile on life in 1776 was rather facinating.
    I’m amazed how many similarities exist between then and now.

    It’s like I keep telling my grandmother when she laments on what’s happening with the world when she reads the news.
    I would tell her “Nothing new.”

    The real question is “Will we EVER learn from history?”

    Amanda,

    Those are some pretty important books. Imagine where we’d be without the people who wrote them? Chances are we’d know less about the world, be much poorer, and die younger. Science is a beautiful thing.
