All this "Rebel Flag" flap has put my literary future in an uncomfortable spot

All this Rebel Flag stuff has put me in a rather awkward position as an author.

See, over the last nine years or so I've written a spate of stories that take place in a fictional timeline where space was colonized by semi-educated poor low-class rural types, mostly from the US. Rednecks, essentially. Of course about a third of the colonists are Russian and Chinese peasant-farmer types, too, and there's ones from other countries in even smaller numbers, but the bulk of the colonists were basically American hillbillies.

MAD MAX: Fury Road: When does it take place?

Finally saw Mad Max IV. If you don't want spoilers, turn back now, but I have a theory I want to put out there.

I don't think the Max in this movie is the same one as in the previous movies. I think it's a different Max a generation, or more likely two generations, later on. How is that possible? Not sure, but if it doesn't happen like 60 years after the pocky pockalypse, then it has to happen between MM and TRW, which is obviously what we're supposed to think, but which doesn't make sense.

Sheldon Cooper gets a job working for "The Blaze."

Just a quick congratulations to "Sheldon Cooper," who started out as a reviewer here, and published a couple original fiction stories. He just started working for "The Blaze" today. This is the network started by uber-conservative and occasional lunatic Glenn Beck. While Beck is not my favorite pundit by a LONG shot. (Say what you will about Rush Limbaugh, he never used network time to try to convince me the Book of Mormon is True), getting a job in the media is a huge deal.
