    Remember, Wednesday starts earlier in Europe, so the earlier the better.

    Perhaps, PZ, you need to remind your readers of why we enjoy the fruits of ‘en”tangled bank'”.

    Celebrating the birth year of Darwin (Feb ’09) – does anyone remember or realize the beginning? Darwin’s ‘en”tangled bank'” ?

    Hm, postponing that article on tuna populations is looking more and more likely…

    @ BrianX – Is that wise? The population must be declining constantly.

    I, for instance, had a cylindrical disk of one of them for lunch…

    Chris, it really sort of depends on how much detail I want to put into it. It isn’t kitchen science per se, but since tuna species are major food fish, it’s definitely food science. That said, most of the numbers I have are from Wikipedia, and the whole issue is a little out of my saute-pans-and-Harold-McGee usual sphere of experience.

    I do want to do it eventually though, because it’s a huge issue.
