Melanie and Katrina, Deanna and Harlan

There are interesting conversations going on and posts popping up across the blogosphere. You should check them out. To start, I'll direct you to Melanie's Katrina anniversary post from yesterday at Hyperextended Joints. I find the stuff about Innovative Energy Management the most disturbing.

Meanwhile, Deanna Hoak has returned from WorldCon with a disturbing report about the behavior of someone whose writings I have long enjoyed, Harlan Ellison. This has prompted a discussion about whether an author's behavior devalues the author's works to the point where you should simply ignore them. Or: can you separate who an author is from what they have written? What do you think?

There's more out there, but finding it is left as an exercise for the reader!
