* A major aftershock has hit Japan, a 7.4. The tsunami warning originally issued has been lifted, which should limit the damage. I hope that country gets a break soon.

* Democrats are filing papers to recall a second GOP state senator in Wisconsin. Guys, collect them all!

* Now Alec Baldwin wants five more years of 30 Rock. Just not with him on it.

* My Student, the ‘Terrorist.’

* Ursula K. Le Guin: How the Sci Fi Channel wrecked my books.

* And the Independent has your list of fifty books every eleven-year-old should read.

Wednesday!

* Now she’s just showing off: Duke’s own Julia Gaffield has found a second copy of the Haitian Declaration of Independence. I’m in that dissertation working group, by the way, so at least half the glory is mine. At least half.

* Ian Sales celebrates SF “mistressworks.” There’s a 91-book version here, on which Xenogenesis is still inexcusably absent.

* What happened to the peace movement?

* Huge turnout in the special election last night for Wisconsin’s Supreme Court. Right now the race is too close to call, with pro-labor candidate JoAnne Kloppenburg up by just a few hundred votes.

* Glenn Beck fired “transitioned off.”

* Alec Baldwin says next season of 30 Rock will be the last. NBC disagrees.

* And just coming over the wire: Donald Trump is as awesomely incompetent at politics as he is at business. I can’t wait for 2012.
