Finally got the taxes essentially done. There are a few deductions I have yet to add to the spreadsheet, but the hardest part is over. Phew. Now I can get back to writing.

I suppose I could take the time to answer the three e-mails I got from the rightwing wackoes, but I doubt if it's worth bothering - especially in the last one, whose writer informed me that the Nazis were socialists, because, like, just look at their name! Like, ya know, I've never heard that dumbshit argument from brain-cell-challenged wingnuts before. I've run into that bullcrap claim for decades; I wouldn't be surprised if it started in the 1930s.

The hits from that site, both here and on my Web site, have tapered off. No doubt some new bright, shiny object has caught their little piggy eyes.

I'll probably take the novelizing route, not the pointless e-mailing one. I'm waiting for advice on the matter from my high-powered advisory committee. Meetings are now underway at Dvorkin Intergalactic HQ regarding the issue.

Don't answer the emails. Valuable mind cells will be lost in the transfer.

Sad but true, lahdeedah.

I did answer one of them last night. I was polite, I thought, but I got back a sneering, childish response.

I should have learned better years ago. I've had good friends who were politically very conservative, but I have to realize that good people who are politically conservative are getting rarer, and the right is increasingly the dirty playground of a gang of thuggish shitheads.

That trend began at least as far back as the 2000 election, during which I watched some of the conservatives I had liked and talked/argued with online turn into thuggish shitheads. It was a sad experience.
