Excellent turn of phrase

She was a typical upper class dimwit, slumming with the chic downtrodden of the day, who couldn’t bake a loaf of bread without romanticizing the distress of the flour and the noble savage qualities of the yeast.

  1. Funny thing, Weber didn’t actually write that. He provides the outline of the basic story, I think… but Eric Flint is the one that actually writes the pages for that and Torch of Freedom.

    And Eric Flint is a dyed-in-the-wool Union Organizer.

    Sometimes he seems to be our kind of people in spite of that, though.

  2. Flint is definitely conflicted. He writes well, however. I wonder, at times, if he’s got two people living in his head.
