Independence Day open thread

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

Believe it or not, your normally blogorrheic host is taking this holiday off. For one thing, I have to work on my talk for the Science-Based Medicine workshop at The Amaz!ng Meeting 9 next week. For another thing, I have a fair amount of work for my actual job to do before tomorrow morning. So in the meantime I’ll do what I like to call a “lazy blogger trick,” namely to post an open thread. I’ll also refer you to an excellent post by Mark Crislip about the difference between clinical thinking and critical thinking. It’s such a good point that I might have to glom onto it and add my two cents on the issue.
