Another Reason To ♥ Jess Fink

First it was her time travel memoir.

Next came her Victorian era robot porn comic. (Totally NSFW.)

Then she started recapping TNG episodes, in comic form.

And now she does this for Halloween:

Bill O'Reilly Sucks

Not that that's news, or anything.

Anyway, from Robot 6:
[W]hen the shoe was on the other foot, O'Reilly did a little stomping of his own: He took offense to his portrayal by political cartoonist Mike Thompson and ... well, let’s let Mike tell it:
He then gave out my work e-mail address and instructed his viewers to "let him know what you think." O'Reilly stressed that his viewers should take the high road in their e-mails to me, which is a little like placing a bowl of Halloween candy in front of kids and telling them not to gorge themselves. O'Reilly's smart enough to know what would happen.
Yup, the high road was definitely the road not taken. Thompson received over 2,500 e-mails, many of them in all caps, discussing exactly what people thought of him and his cartoon and what they would like to do to him.
I'm well aware that there's hypocrisy on both sides of the political spectrum, I'm just tired of it. Aren't you?

You all remember The Known Universe, right? This one came first.

Why are athiests so angry?

Greta Christina's "Atheists and Anger":
But I think it's important. One of the most common criticisms lobbed at the newly-vocal atheist community is, "Why do you have to be so angry?" So I want to talk about:

1. Why atheists are angry;

2. Why our anger is valid, valuable, and necessary;

And 3. Why it's completely fucked-up to try to take our anger away from us.

So let's start with why we're angry. Or rather -- because this is my blog and I don't presume to speak for all atheists -- why I'm angry.

A response to some comments:
And as commenters in the rant have pointed out, even the social movement leaders who generally get tagged as the non-angry, peaceful, "good cops" -- Martin Luther King, Gandhi -- were very angry indeed. They just channeled their anger in constructive ways. Which I think is a grand idea. But acknowledging that anger and expressing it is an important part of that process.
