The doctor is waiting

Doctor Charles is waiting.

Yes, he’s the host of the next edition of the Skeptics’ Circle, scheduled to land on his blog, The Examining Room of Doctor Charles this Thursday, June 8. You only have two days until the deadline. Doctor Charles’ contact information for submissions is here; general guidelines for submission are here.

Doctor Charles has been blogging quite a while, a couple of months longer than I have, and I’ve liked his blog since I first discovered it. Indeed, I’ve always rather envied his way of telling a story. If you want to see what I mean, check out this recent gem from him, Breast Implants vs. The Family Doctor.

I expect this Skeptics’ Circle to be among our best–if you can provide Dr. Charles with the raw material he needs. So get blogging…

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
