So I'm watching Criminal Minds.   I usually watch this show in the background when I'm doing other things.  At the moment, I was sketching out a short story I wanted to write.

But I'm paying attention, sort of.  I know the dude's been framed for some kids murder and it cuts to commercial.  When it comes back the dude is quoting a writer. 

"All secrets are deep.  All secrets become dark.  That's in the nature of secrets.  Writer.  Cory Doctorow."

What?!

I don't really believe what I've heard because it's Cory.  I know Cory.  And this isn't a science fiction show!  It has nothing to do with SF!

So I rewind. 

Because I could have misheard.

It could have been E.L. Doctorow.  Except that I'm pretty sure I heard Cory and it sounds like something Cory would write. 

And I hear the quote again.

And he says Cory Doctorow.

I'm stunned.

Not stunned in the way that I think, no shit, he doesn't deserve it.  But I'm stunned in the, Jebus, I know him! kind of way.  

I'm just stunned that serious mainstream shows have any knowledge or even wants to acknowledge SF writers.  Granted he's also known as a tech guy.  But it's Criminal Minds!!  

I'm just stunned. 

Cory!  When did he get so uber famous?!

Too Cool!

Now if we can just get someone mainstream to acknowledge Yog's Law!
