Yes, I’ve Seen This Red Shirt-Related Macro + B&N Review Take on Redshirts
The graphic above has only been forwarded to me about 40,000 times (I was first referred to it here). Yes, I’ve seen it. Yes, it’s funny. One suspects that the folks at Independent Health are sweetly oblivious to the cognitive dissonance their chosen shirt color provides us geeks.
While we’re at least tangentially on the subject of Redshirts, here’s Paul Di Fillipo’s review of the novel at Barnes & Noble Review. It has a couple things I consider spoilers, but in the main it’s an excellent review, not just because it’s positive but because the estimable Di Fillipo gets what’s going on with the book. Also, he favorably compares it to Voltaire’s work (in a glancing way, mind you) and this is the first time I’ve been compared to that lovely fellow, so I am tickled pink.
