I suppose there's not much point in commenting since it's so many months after the OP, but it makes me kinda sad that no one* posted any videos of the real Larry Lessig to show just why Josh Silver described him as a "rock star". So just in case anyone should wander by this post in the future, here are a couple of the many videos out there featuring Lessig and his considerable talent as a speaker. (I apologize for not embedding - for some reason it's not working for me today.)

"We, the people, and the republic we must reclaim" - TED talk on money in politics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mw2z9lV3W1g
Remix of one of his talks called "Reclaim Democracy": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CaaWXhrEzQ
"Laws that choke creativity": - an older TED talk on copyright law: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Q25-S7jzgs

*I didn't expand all replies to comments, so maybe there's one buried in there somewhere.

Anyone out there still interested in doing a Spoils Reads Fruits Basket project? (I've been gone a long time due to student teaching and other time-sucking things...)

*sigh* I'm so far behind on everything. Here are Veronica Mars links for last week, and I'm *pretty* sure I never got around to posting the week before that, either, so I'm posting those as well.

Since I'm not sure if I already posted the older set, please do comment right away if you get expired links so we'll know. Thx.

Completely agree with your rot13.

This was more or less my thought as well.

Yep. The fact that we get all this O'Dell drama with no mention of their deathly ill son always bothers me, too.

Is there Logan/Wallace fic out there? Wogan? Lallace? Wow, they have a terrible ship name.

I don't know if there's an official name in fandom, but I would just like to take this opportunity to nominate WalLo.

I think in this case the uber-religious snobbery trumped the 09er snobbery. Lucky sings hymns with his eyes closed, remember?

Here’s my last prediction post for Veronica Mars...

Awww, no movie predictions, then? ;)
