The Dark Forest, by Liu Cixin

This is the follow-up to The Three-Body Problem. I thought the translation wasn't as good/clear -- if nothing else it was done by a different person.

The plot wanders, as I suppose it must in a multicentury story of preparing for alien contact, settling into various distinct eras in human history. A lot of ideas get run up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes, but many of them are pretty dubious... I can't work up even a half-hearted salute for some of them. I'm not sure I still care enough to finish the trilogy -- at the moment the decision is made for me, as the last volume has not yet been translated into English.

Is Hillary Clinton a Lesbian?

It could be that she is a Lesbian, or at least bisexually if one believes the statements of some lovers of her husband, Bill Clinton. According to the statement of one of his lovers, Bill Clinton shall have said the following about his wife: "She has licked more twats as me in my whole life ". (original quote)
Since Hillary often was with her husband in Europe and she has studied at a woman college, I regard it as possible if not even probable that she is bisexual or lesbian. Your comments on it?
