My Blogging Year

Bora and Janet have done it, so why not. Basic idea is to reproduce the first sentence of the first post over the past year.

  1. I’ve noted before that a significant number of lawyers not only to deny evolution but also appear to think that their training as a lawyer enables them to adjudicate scientific “controversies” (real or percieved).
  2. Some quick blasts as it’s mid-week, I’m busy, and probably wont do much blogging until the weekend.
  3. Still busy here.
  4. I seem to have annoyed someone by the moniker of ‘dlamming’, apparently a graduate student who is interested in yeast.
  5. This more or less encapsulates everything that is wrong with this country.
  6. As I expected, Ed comments on the Washington online poker law that I posted on yesterday, and raises an interesting point.
  7. The Lynch Euro 2006 tour is over.
  8. As I type this, votes are being counted in Kansas in primaries for the State Board of Education.
  9. “Talking in bed ought to be easiest” [This was a Friday Poem]
  10. I’ve been kinda quiet the past few days as I have been part of a team hosting Bernie Lightman (a noted historian of Victorian science) here at ASU.
  11. It the first morning of the HSS meeting here in Vancouver and as usual I spent yesterday evening reconnecting with people.
  12. Today in 1955, Rosa Parks refused to give her bus seat to a white man and is arrested for violating the city’s racial segregation laws.

Obviously February and March were a bit busy and October & November were work-related, but oveall this encapsulates a lot of what happened this year.
