August 2: TJILC #3
 
<p>Big news today! As many of you know, the government has lately been embroiled in a fierce dispute that threatens to kill us all -- or worse, make us pay attention to economics. Both sides recently made their cases to the public, and <i>This Just In</i> was on the scene. We're proud to bring you <b>Live Coverage #3</b>: <a href="../thisjustin/lc3.php">The replication-limit war</a>.
<p>(Note: Pixel-editing a picture of Soval is exactly as much fun as you think it is.)
<p>(Note 2: Oh yeah, I said "details later" last update. There isn't much to tell; site stuff got derailed again, but the anniversary event is still on and will be concluded as soon as I can manage.)

I generally don't agree with your politics, Zeke, but this was a nice mash-up of various Trekiverse bits. Plus anytime "the book" gets bashed with sheer logic it's good for a laugh. :)

We all know the Klingons are a reasonable people; moreover, they can no longer strike at will now that we have moved their homeworld so much farther away
I found this absurdly hilarious. Ahhh, retcons.

Fantastic stuff, Zeke.

I hope you will all keep him in your non-denominational prayers to a vaguely defined secular entity who probably doesn't exist. If you can't think of one, just choose something big. Personally, I pray to the centre of the galaxy.
:D :D

A civilized government has no use for scare tactics.

Now let me be clear: if I don't get this increase passed, your entire family will die.
Whee!

Before I address the specific points of President Archer's speech, it is incumbent on me to acknowledge that I did not actually watch it, since I was busy rehearsing my own.
Zing!

And announcing a new title halfway through a book is unprofessional at best.

Something called corbomite that General Reed refuses to disclose any details about.
Hee.

A fleet of 100 ships could never reach our borders undetected, and that number is in any case a groundless, unscientific guess. According to the Vulcan Science Directorate's far more methodical analyses, the president's experts are overestimating by at least 6.
Plus/minus .003, I'm sure.

Good stuff, as always, Zeke.

I'd like to quote it all, but as that would make for a really long post, I'll settle for this:

We have tried and will continue to try, but the fact is, non-Federation races have consistently refused to give us stuff for free.
Very funny.

So were the Breaking Bad fiver and Ten Little Comedians part 4, by the way. I read them, but I don't think I ever got around to commenting on them.

I agree with all the above posters. Acerbically witty and very entertaining, as usual, Zeke. Can't wait to read more of the anniversary stuff. Oh and btw any word on when my DS9 fiver for Let He Who is Without Sin might be posted? (assuming it still will be, I hope..)
