Why I’m not a teetotaler

William Gibson has the best by-line for the Pentagon’s scheme to revive democratic participation in current events by creating a futures market in terrorism. He calls it Ender’s Futures Market Terminated. Yes indeed, Ender: I guess science fiction writers always did have the inside track on the gifted, but who would have thought that badly challenged (read: misguided) intelligence in high places would come up with something as dystopic as this. Sci-fi pales in comparison.
