Migrainey and tired after delivering three rounds today after work, so just links.
For those USians (sorry Sean) who don’t understand what all the fuss is about with the UK election, Debi has nicely explained the British system and the current unusual situation, as well as providing links to half a dozen other posts I was going to link.
Everyone should be reading Philip Purser-Hallard’s 140-character short stories at his fiction Twitter account, trapphic. A couple of examples:

Most people thought far worse about this week’s Who than I did. Gavin Burrows has one of the best negative reviews.
And finally, over at FourthLetter, an absolutely fantastic series of posts (mostly guest posts) about Frank Miller, together making a very strong case for Miller’s importance despite everything. Index here.
