It’s been an exciting week here at Signout. Now that I am back from my unannounced sabblogtical (yeah, I made that up), I’ve tended to some much-needed housekeeping. To wit, the blogroll has been pruned of defunct and outdated links. Now you may futz around all up in the sidebar without fear. Futz, I say!
Speaking of, and not to nag or anything, I kind of wish you’d give a little more click to the DonorsChoose link I posted last week. Every single visitor to that site can raise up to 10 bucks by voting for each of the 10 video profiles listed. With two minutes and a little back-button savvy, you can get Pfizer to buy a classroom a book, or a pencil, or an electric wheelchair, or any number of other things. Please consider checking it out. (And no, you don’t need to actually watch the videos, nor sign up for anything, anywhere, to participate. This is so easy, people.)
Also, I’ve added one particular blogger of note to the blogroll: PalMD, over at the ScienceBlog denialism blog. He’s a real live internist–not nearly as much of a schmuck as I am–who writes beautifully and without a single shrill note about a whole variety of issues related to health care and the practice of medicine. He also writes with far more regularity than I ever did. If you’ve ever sort of liked anything I’ve written, you’ll love him. Go now!
While I’m whipping up hype, watch this space for information about the ScienceBlogs one-millionth-comment hooha. I can reveal nothing, but can tell you that it will make you want to comment early and often, and it will make me want to be your friend.
Oh! And go read Change of Shift.
Real content coming soon. Meanwhile, I am going to spend a few hours pondering the startling unlikeability of the entire cast of this season’s Project Runway, after which I plan to scoop out my tympanic membranes with a melon baller to keep Kenley’s voice from echoing in my head all night.
