With the whole Clinton Email thing again in the news, it seems to me that people are pretty easygoing with the rights our system gives us regarding knowing what our Government is doing for and to us.

1. The way Hillary Clinton did business fundamentally undermines the ability of the people to file a FOIA request for government documents. 

Want to file a FOIA for her state department emails?  Nope, she decided you didn't need to see everything she did while working for us.

Think what it will be like when EVERY government official follows the model tacitly being accepted as okay by almost everyone covering it.

2. Even more fundamental is the ability of the people to monitor the government to make sure it isn't slowly growing into an organization like the one in charge of many other countries in the world. If we had the present attitude back when Nixon had his Waterloo, err, Watergate, there would never have been an outcry for an investigation. 

Think if Woodward and Bernstein had been blown off the way people are blowing off those wondering about the emails that Hillary deleted.

What do you think the world would look like today if Nixon had remained in power with the kind of head-start he would have had in the way he did business behind the scenes?

After the unchained lady spread her cloak of ice upon the Vith, all Spelljamming became almost impossible, the arts of the Ice Jammers having been lost in ages past.

Dhul Kyotarstis, The Mountain that was a Fortress.

...abandoned after the end of the Aegis Age, it was never retaken and fell into mystery and shadow.  With the severing of the lifebond, the Elementals were split from their hosts and became as locusts upon the Vith.  The shining worlds fell dark as the Ptharis closed their eyes and revoked free travel between all the works of the people.

With the lifebond's loss, the children of Orm awakened and accepted the mantles of power once more, the lady who was unchained spread her cloak of ice upon the Vith and shunned the people, accepting them once more only after they dropped the bonds of mortality and accepted her bonds.

Dhul Kyotarstis has been sought and found many times, but always to the bane of those who entered it's halls. The keys to it's locations have been brokered as items of value between the Merchants who ply the Ghlavian Rivers.  No key is the same, as is no location.  For those who think they are strong of heart and stout of body, remember, the key only gains entry to the outermost works of the Mountain that is a Fortress.  The journey is long, dangerous, and cursed.  The rewards, vast.

Ilkearthin, 34th son of the Sookrashin Merchant Dynasty.

This caught my eye due to the light touch in the colour palette. There's something very open and bare about a watercolor approach - with very little room to hide errors. This is an example of it done very well.

French Student Sets Internet on Fire with Animation Inspired by Moebius, Syd Mead & Hayao Miyazaki
The internet over in Japan was lit ablaze last month by a student film. Titled “Celles et Ceux des Cimes et Cieux” (“Girls and Guys from the Summits and the Skies”), the short is a gorgeously animated trailer for what looks like an amazing yet-to-be-made feature film.

Ted Cruz, the Federal Government doesn't have the "power" of marriage.

Huh, finally explained.  Marriage is a form of power that States get to hold over citizens.  Power, power, power.  Gotta have that power over people, any kind of power.

Several unlucky Merchants scavenging a debris field after a naval engagement discover that the Navy might have first dibs.  A Batron-type Carrier has just jumped in and is sortieing several ships in the background.

Reminds me a lot of CJ Cherryh's Merchanter series, especially Downbelow Station.

Merchant families band together against the rogue Company Fleet, who are nominally under Earth command but in reality are little better than pirates.
