The day we defended Twilight and Stephanie Meyer

It was a dark day indeed.

Heather and I spent much of our writing energies yesterday at Southern Fried Science in a healthy debate with the good folks over there about Meyer's responsibilities in publishing a novel using the culture of a local native tribe, cultural capital, the free flow of ideas, the absolute value of art, crediting work, marketing and all kinds of other lovely philosophical things. I'm sure there is still much to discuss, so weigh in if you feel like you have something useful to add. I may write something a bit more cohesive if I find the time in the future.

Cheers to Amy, Andrew and David for being so welcoming and engaging.
