Obama’s Loss Traced To Abel

A reader sent the following to my blog e-mail address but under my meatspace name. So much for pseudonymity. Here’s the version with my ‘nym: And am I the only one who wonders if Mrs Walsh is PhysioProf’s mother?

Here’s an update on E. coli-gate in Tularosa, NM: Okay, so it’s more than fluid – it’s about a pint of sludge left in front of each house where the garbage truck stopped. But this is ridiculous: [Tularosa resident Ken] Riedlinger took samples from the sludge puddle to the Diagnostic and Technology Center in Alamogordo…

Over 200,000 served. . .

. . .and I thank you for your support. I’m not a huge blog traffic addict and, in fact, I mostly keep a SiteMeter counter below because I get to see the geographical distribution of our readers. They have a great map feature where you can look at the locations of the last 100 or…

Nice to see y’all in NYC!

After a long sit on the tarmac at LaGuardia Airport, I’m home from the ScienceBlogs blogger and reader meet-up. Many thanks to all of you readers who came out on Saturday to meet the bloggers at Social Pub, sponsored jointly by Seed Media Group and NYC Skeptics. The threatened anti-vaccination crowd did not materialize and…

It appears that a number of bloggers who write under the ScienceBlogs.com masthead will be converging on New York City this coming weekend. For those of you who know my background, I simply call this “The City.” I mentioned earlier that it was unlikely that I would be there due to family and job commitments…

Yes, I really will be back

A convergence of personal and professional issues have left me little or no time for blogging the last week or so. But many thanks to you for checking in here and even e-mailing to say hi. I actually have a couple of good science topics in the hopper but haven’t been able to execute them…

A lively discussion has ensued this week across the intertubes about the ScienceBlogs.com network to which we belong and what should or shouldn’t be provided as content in a blog that calls itself a science blog. As usual, the most sober, inclusive, and non-inflammatory treatise on the topic comes from ethicist, philosopher, and physical chemist…

Rise Up: Blogroll Amnesty Day

Yesterday was the 1st anniversary of Blogroll Amnesty Day, originally proposed by a reasonably prominent blogger who used the occasion to relieve himself of guilt when purging his blogroll and building back up only a list of those he reads regularly. I learned via my new homies, PhysioProf and DrugMonkey that Jon Swift and Skippy…

Over 100,000 served…

…and we thank you. If you look down yonder left, you’ll see that my SiteMeter counter passed 100,000 visits earlier today. To be precise, a visitor from the University of Edinburgh’s Moray House Institute of Education dialed into ScienceBlogs’ ‘Last 24 Hours’ channel at 2037 GMT and clicked on my post about yesterday’s death of…

Many thanks to all

For readers not in the US, today is Thanksgiving Day. Our friends to the north celebrated their harvest festival last month. I’ll be giving thanks today to my local Honeybaked Ham® franchise for making our little stay-at-home celebration that much easier. As I also enjoy my British-crafted Samuel Smith Imperial Stout, I’ll also be giving…
