Welcome to the October Blender of Love Digest! September was a great
month for the Blender, a recovery from the summer lull, and this
month reaps the benefits of that annual reawakening.
So this month features a back-to-normal Ramble, a review of a brilliant graphic novel, and
all the usual poetic and prose goodness the monthly Digest brings. Enjoy, and feel
free to check out anything you may have missed during the summer!

great article explaining some of the hysteria
