I liked that Stross book a lot. Although Glasshouse is still my favorite.

We saw Salt today – great, great fun. Replace Brad Pitt with the German dude, and Angelina could have been Mrs. Smith again, only in the CIA, and far more gentle in spirit. But it was a nice script – with no ugh moments – and seriously entertaining, despite the fact that her frail body could never really drop onto all those semis and still keep running. But that’s what movies are for.
