Sunday Reading: Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

It may be one of the biggest Hallmark holidays of the year – one that surely has its creator “spinning her grave” – but that shouldn’t stop you from taking the time to celebrate one’s mom.

For you nerds who need convincing that moms are great, Wired’s GeekDad blog is ringing in this maternal Sunday with the “Top Ten Mothers in Science-Fiction and Fantasy.” Everything from Dune to the Battlestar reimagining is represented. It’s not a bad list, though I’m pretty sure Queen Amidala (Luke Skywalker’s mom) is a better mom in concept than in actual film history (see: this).

If you need any further guidance as to what you should do today, I refer you to the foremost expert on mom treatment.
