Regular readers might be wondering why my output was—shall we say?—less extensive last week than it usually is. I even skipped a weekday and then followed it up with a recycled post from my not-so-super-secret other blog, altered to be a bit more, yes, Insolent. The answer is a single word: Grants. I had a grant deadline. That’s basically past now. However, today is a holiday, and, besides taking some time to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, I also plan on taking a day off from full-scale blogging as well. Fortunately, there are a couple of links to thinks that should amuse you that I can post:
- Challenge to Magda Havas: Independent Test. Lorne Trottier, who runs the EMF & Health website, sent me a link to an amusing little story about an old “friend” of ours, Magda Havas, who is well-known as an EMF fear monger in Canada. Well, Joe Schwarcz and Lorne Trottier issued a challenge to her to replicate her “study” in which she found that EMF could cause heart irregularities. Hilarity, as they say, ensued.
- In which a certain person known to most Oracolytes is taken to task by an eminent radiologist. Dr. Kopans noticed!
- Jake Crosby Speaks At AutismOne Saturday in Chicago. Jake’s talk was two days ago. One wonders whether, as is the case for most of the other talks at the yearly autism antivaccine quackfest, we’ll get to see Jake in action. I can’t wait.
Regular blogging should resume tomorrow.
