About Thaddaeus Edwards

The time has come, the walrus said, to speak of many things, of shoes of ships, of sealing wax, of cabbages and kings, and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.

    No cases have yet been reported in the U.S., but resistant gonorrhea is likely to arrive and spread long before physicians and the C.D.C. recognize it; some public-health officials predict that in five to eight years the superbug will be widespread.

    I felt as though I’d been speared through the heart myself. The rest of the movie happened, the survivors of Serenity fought the good fight, and the Big Story ended Big, just as it should have. But I was still in Serenity’s cockpit, with Wash, a mantra repeating in my head. He is not dead. I do not accept that. Something will happen. Something will bring him back. He. Is. Not. Dead.
    Note: Yeah, me too.

  • Thaddaeus shared from Zone One: A Novel by Colson Whitehead
    The Coakley was the other prize. Although named after its creator, it was a government asset from ignition switch to heat sensor. The incinerator had been jerry-rigged for mobility, and the rear loader was obviously a late addition—the rough metal in coarse contrast to the gleaming silver body—but its original purpose remained. It burned things. Here, it burned the bodies of the dead with uncanny efficiency, swallowing what the soldiers fed into it and converting it to smoke, fly ash, and a shovelful of hard material too stubborn to be entirely consumed. Hearts, mostly. That thick muscle.
