Comments: 3Q with Deborah Leblanc (we were neither of us math majors…)

Amen, Deborah - I don't believe there is a typical Southerner although we have some common characteristics. Besides the differences among Southern states, even folks in parts of Alabama are different from folks in other parts of Alabama and I'm sure that's true for Louisiana, Missisippi and Georgia as well.

Joshilyn, I hope your family emergency is indeed minor and mainly provides a good excuse for visiting.

Deborah and her books rock. I look forward to this one too. And check out Murder She Writes, it's one of my favorite blogs.

I hope your family emergency works out with all well.

I love sense of place in a book. I like to feel like I now know a place I've never been before in real life a bit better--I get that especially strongly in your books, Joshilyn. I'm getting a better appreciation of my own place as I get older, too. It's not Southern, but it is loaded with unique culture that quite possibly is incomprehensible to an outsider.

Am I the only person that went and googled "Chaos Magic" immediately after reading this entry?

It's absolutely fascinating what happens to physics once it leaves the domain of science and gets dropped into popular culture.
