The Sad Saga of Korra: Or How a Network Screws Over its Fans

Exactly a week ago from today, fans of Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra tuned their TV sets - for the last time - to see Korra's elemental-bending friends have an epic battle with Book Three's (that's Season 3, for the uninitiated) main villains (who each individually can bend one element, including their leader… » 8/01/14 9:10am Today 9:10am

Ask Me Anything - International Shipping/Logistics (and trade)

I work for an international freight forwarder, heading up the JFK branch as an operations manager. Essentially everything that isn't made in your home country, and even things that are made there have to get from point A to point B, and sometimes points C, D, E, and F.

The National Review Just Fake Geek Girl'd Neil deGrasse Tyson

It would seem the National Review looked up and realized that suddenly, its stockpile of liberal stereotypes were out of date. The old standbys like "latte-swilling limousine liberals" "hairy-legged radical feminists" and "effete Ivory Tower collectivists" just don't have the same punch. Meet the statistics-spewing,… » 7/31/14 6:07pm Yesterday 6:07pm

Saga #6, or If There's A Rocket, Tie Me To It

Saga is not like other comics. These aren't issues, so much as chapters. There is no supervillain who gets thrown in jail, only to break out to swear revenge in a few issues (at least, that hasn't happened yet).
