Lolita and Morality, Karaoke, and Joining The Valve

Dear readers,

I’ve been getting some e-mails and instant messages about when I was going to respond to a very annoyed person (named “Steven Augustine”) over at the Valve, who has been questioning my grasp on reality. My response is ready, for your reading pleasure.

(Updated: Also, my new response to Bill Benzon is about the utopian possibilities of karaoke, plus Burning Man and the Coachella Music Festival.)

I’m also pleased to say that I will be joining the regular roster of the Valve shortly, and will continue to post there with cross-posts over here. Exciting stuff.
