Maintaining Optimism in the Face of Reality.
Occasional observations on the state of the world, society, business and politics. Usually anchored by facts, always augmented by opinion.
While admittedly the three words of this post's title sound like "one of these things is not like the others," our Second Lady Lynne Cheney actually brings them together. Many people know Dick and Lynne Cheney have a lesbian daughter. It doesn't come up too often, and she has unfortunately not started a broader interest group supporting her father's run (my suggestion for a name has always been "Lesbians Who Want Dick"). What most people don't know, however, is that Lynne Cheney is actually a published author of lesbian fiction. Her 1981 book, Sisters
, is unfortunately out-of-print. Today Amazon has a used copy for sale for $1,500, and it is one of the few used copies I have seen recently. If you'd just like to get some highlights for the book, along with some accompanying photography (with some minor above-the-waist nudity), Nerve
has commissioned a photo shoot
with quotes from Lynne's book as captions. Entertaining, but really not prurient.
