Respectful Insolence

Ack!

The new Skeptic’s Circle is here! Yes, the 79th Meeting of the Skeptics’ Circle has convened over at Podblack Blog, and it’s another great collection of skeptical blogging. So why am I disturbed? I just realized that I’ve utterly failed in my organizer duties in that I totally forgot to submit one of my own posts to the Circle. The shame! Even worse, the Circle’s just fine without me; if I hadn’t pointed it out I doubt that anyone would have noticed that I hadn’t submitted anything.

So why point it out?

Actually, in a way it’s a very good thing. It just goes to show that the Skeptics’ Circle is bigger than any one person or blogger. It doesn’t need me and no doubt would go on in some incarnation or another if I ever had to give up being its organizer. That’s a good thing.

So, here’s hoping the Circle is still there for decades to come, a beacon of sanity and reason in the cesspit of credulity that is the blogosphere. Now go over and read it.

    Don’t worry, you are there in spirit. You wrote something a while ago about New England hospital mortality rates – I related it to my daily problems of sample size in measuring direct marketing activity and also to old England politics.

    You got more than just a “hat tip”, you are directly linked through. More Thanks Here.

    Great blog at Podblack by the way, good choice of website and good links that were featured there. I think PZ Myers even got a LOLcat in passing too.
