Congratulations to Lynch and Lehrer!

Impressive company I’m keeping! Two of my SciBlings have recently received some deeply cool honors.

Over at Stranger Fruit, John Lynch has received the Carnegie/CASE professor of the year award for the state of Arizona. Very nice!

Meanwhile, Jonah Lehrer of The Frontal Cortex has snagged a place on Amazon’s ten best science books of the year list for Proust Was a Neuroscientist. Again, very nice.

Congratulations to John and Jonah.

As for everyone else, have a Happy Thanksgiving! Driving tip: If you’re travelling from Virginia to New Jersey via I-95 on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, leave real early in the morning. I just did that, and it worked perfectly. No traffic at all!

    The Baltimore *SUN* has had a series of articles on how to avoid I95, and/or avoid the dreadful Delaware Tolls, both this past week and in the similar week of 2006. (From Baltimore north only, of course.)

    In ’06, a pair of folks started out simultaneously and compared routes and tolls. Timewise, it was a near wash, tollwise, the backroads won handily.
