Two things are making this New Yorker smile today.
First, there’s a glowing review of Pirates of the Burning Sea in the New York Times, on the front page of the Arts section no less. One line cracked me up (“The very reason people play any sort of role-playing game — Dungeons & Dragons, World of Warcraft, Doctor and Patient — is to explore a fantasy”), but overall it’s a very positive review and great exposure for the game. Also, I can’t wait for Doctor and Patient 4th Edition!
The other bit of joyous news for me is that Rudy Giuliani dropped out of the race for the presidency. Fuck yeah! The rest of the country may think of him as “America’s mayor”, but actual New Yorkers know he is a morally bankrupt thug and bully who would have been a disaster as president. I think 8 years of disaster is quite enough for America, so see you later, Rudy. Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.
I have yet to meet (physically or electronically) any New Yorker who liked the thought of Giuliani as president. But that could just be a result of the circles I travel in.

Heck, my politics are pretty darn the opposite of yours, and I’m not sorry to see him go. Of course, I’d like to take a mulligan on the whole lot of ’em on both sides, but that’s beside the point…
Although I would have taken Giuliani over Huckabee if I had to. *shudder*
Oh, and the article in the NYTimes? Very cool. Congrats to PotBS.
