    >This is rated for teens 16 and up, but I would expect its real audience is boys around twelve or thirteen (and maybe girls of similar age; I still know a lot less about what girls know or like or want at that age)."Twilight." Girls that like "Twilight." Not that I'm a fan — I just know a lot of girls that age. I have a little sister.

    Here in Atlanta, there was, for a long time, a very popular talk-radio host named Ludlow Porch, who was not Lewis Grizzard's brother.Ludlow wouldn't fir the current talk-radio paradigm, as he was definitely not political.Anyway, he started out on WRNG radio (where Neal Boortz started out), and had a large following of like-minded wackos. (Literally. They even had "Wacko COnventions" a couple years.)When WRNG changed formats and stopped being all-talk, Ludlow wound up off the air for a few years, while he wrote and did other things.But then he started doing a late-night shift on WSB radio, and, the first night he was on, after like five years off the air, was "As I was saying…"

    More Japanese anime depicting flawed, defenseless, weak, lowly esteemed, lowly statured teenage and pre-teen girls who are beaten, stripped and raped by brutal older adult men with fists, feet, swords and monsters like octopii. The typical storyline for Japanimation. Japanese animation hasn't changed its style in the 30 odd years its been around. The artwork all looks the same. The stories all amount to the same abuses and offenses toward women. Give me Wonder Woman, anyday. Give me She-Hulk. Give me Black Canary. Give me Whisper. Give me Ms. Tree. Give me Miss Marvel!!!!!!!! 8D

      Sky Talon, the only thing I'll give you is an extra-large dose of your meds, since you clearly forgot to take them this morning. And please stop running away from the nice men with the butterfly net; they only want to help you and give you a special coat so you can hug yourself all day long.
