He sends a letter to the sitting SFWA president.
In the latter link, commentor Dystopic nails it:
The SFWA is no different than Joseph Stalin. Beria was known to do this sort of thing, Stalin even ensured that his daughter was never alone with the man. Yet Stalin did not care that Beria was the top man in the NKVD. As long as he was politically useful, he could rape and molest all he liked, and the Stalin government would keep a lid on it.That's all there is to it. They don't care what you do as long as you vote the right way.
It can seem difficult to draw a hard line between all conservatives and all liberals. Certainly, politics is more of a continuum than anything else. Yet, it may be appropriate to say one major dividing line is this. The Left subsumes everything to politics. If you have the appropriate politics, all is forgiven. If you don't, all stops will be pulled in an effort to destroy you.
Witness please Hollywood's reaction to Roman Polanski, convicted rapist. Whoopi Goldberg said it wasn't "rape-rape", after all, and a bunch of other noted Hollywood figures expressed support for Polanski.
The left loves to tell us that "silence is consent" but the instant they are silent about one of their own being a skunk, suddenly it's an entirely different ball of wax.

Speaking of which, apparently the Orland Park Public Library is the place to go if you want to access the kidi pr0ns.
The American Library Association has actively sought to prevent limits on what can be accessed via computers and network links at public libraries, up to and including child pornography. In light of that, the fact that the Orland Park Public Library is refusing to do anything to clamp down on such access is not terribly surprising.
Problem is, it's against the law. Enforcing that law is the problem, though, because the people who are enabling the predators are the same ones charged with enforcing the law--and then the question becomes, "Who does this benefit?"
That's what makes me leery about the whole story, right there: someone benefits from this, and I have a sneaking suspicion it's someone relatively important, someone who has "pull".

Meanwhile here's an article written by the mother of the kid who was critically injured by a flash-bang grenade in a pointless no-knock raid.

As for today, it's a sticky, humid day outside.
As expected the immediate back yard was still a swamp yesterday afternoon--if the sod squelches when you walk on it, it's a swamp--but a further inspection revealed that the rest of the lawn was not, so I cut the front and the "east 40" and the sides, and left the back yard alone. The grass cut just fine and didn't clog the mower.
I'm glad I did, because it rained again last night, for several hours.
When it does finally dry out enough for me to cut the grass, it's going to be LONG, though. Well, I'll worry about that when I come to it.
