Happy Mother's Day

If I were in Los Angeles, I would go to the BluJam cafe
because the food on their website is mouth-watering.

To my mother, my wife, my mother-in-law and all the mothers among my friends, I wish you all a happy Mother's Day. May your children surprise you, delight you, and reflect back all the love you've given them. Forgive them, encourage them, teach them how to be the best they can be. We children who become parents have usually figured out what our mothers went through with us and if we haven't told you we understand, you should know that we do. And we're grateful for all that you did, especially holding back that time or two you really wanted to strangle us.

I was going to be a little more clever and talk about the great mothers of science fiction but it seemed a little too silly. Maybe I'll do that next year. (Or maybe I'll just link to a year-old article on Wired that's a reprint of an article from the year before. My list would be slightly different, though. Next year.)

For instance I'd have to include Heinlein's Maureen Johnson and Amy Pond for being so influential in their respective universes. Any arguments with those two choices? Who are yours?
