I plan on putting this MS in the mail to Norton first thing Thursday morning, and I still have editing to do (I HATE writing chapter titles), so no long post. Just a note that the video of the lecture I gave at the Princeton Public Library is now online.
Although I can’t resist making just one remark about The Day the Earth Stood Still…
I adore disaster movies. But HELLLOOO?
You CAN’T have a disaster movie where the plot is…
1. People will never change! I must destroy you!
2. Oh, look! You’re hugging each other!
3. You can change!! I must not destroy the earth!!!
What a disappointment. And just when I needed some really cathartic and major city-destruction, too.
