Sarah Palin, Feminist?I heard something on the radio the other day that really got me thinking. The station, a news organization that some years ago went under new management and is now like a Canadian version of Fox News, was talking about feminism. Oh, no, a Fox-like station talking about feminism? Yeah, I know, right.
So the commentator argued that women like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman were the "true" feminists, whereas self-proclaimed feminists like Margaret Atwood were wasting their time in a pseudo-progressive hippie colony of the mind. My first reaction was, of course, to shake my fist at the radio and tell the commentator to take a hike, but after thinking it over, I came to realize... he's right. Partially.

Soph was about twenty years old, and he'd been that way for a couple of years already, ever since the Hoarde had started attacking humanity from the past. Every day that passed, they ate at another day in the past. It sickened him. Those creatures had absolutely no regard for proper time and causality protocols.
It didn't seem to affect anyone else that way, though.
The Hoarde was the result of a human creation, of course, like everything bad in the world, though no one else knew about them. Then again, no one else had undiluted access to the power of creation. Even he didn't know much about the Hoarde, only that they appeared through some tear in The Fabric of The World and started killing people off. They appeared at some point in
