Barry or Hillary?

Kwisatz Haderach or Bene Gesserit?

You be the judge.

(With acknowledgments to cynical dystopian Lawrence Person.)


In other news, check out Louis Bayard's amusing interoffice memo from the in-house counsel at Erewhon Publishing, "Attention, all you memoir fabulists," suggesting some liability-avoiding corrections to well-known autobiographical works, e.g.:

'"Speak, Memory" by Vladimir Nabokov

'The author loses his first butterfly at Vyra, Russia, finds it again 40 years later in Colorado. Average life span for a butterfly is 20 to 40 days. Suggest changing "butterfly" to "giant tortoise."'
