A Couple of Puppy-related Things

Not me talking; I just like them.

First, the relative clarity of this explanation of the Puppy Hugo Wars over at - oh, hell, now I'm giggling; why? Just take a look at the name of the site - obviously written for folks who have little acquaintance with fandom.

Second, Jim Hines' cogent commentary on why it shouldn't, perhaps be seen as Puppy Hugo Wars - or at least, that we should remember we're disagreeing with real people, in a real world that has edges, shadows, three dimensions etc., not taking paint-ball aim at two-dee shooting gallery cardboard rectangles.
