Your vote (for my haiku) can make a difference -- but time is running out!

My humble haiku,
Clobbered in the poll -- Unless
You vote, intervene.

Voting closes February 26, 11:59 PM EST -- so act now!

(If you want to be sure you're voting for mine, I reproduce them below the fold.)

The one of my two entries with the most votes so far:

A mature science
has no need for causal talk?
Chemists shout, " 'Fraid not!"

"Underlying Stories: The Structure of Causal Talk in Chemistry and in Everyday Life"

The other haiku I submitted, which is not doing well at all:

Chlorite, iodide.
What makes such oscillations?
Perturb, gauge response.

"Experiments and theory toward the determination of bifurcation features and the deduction of the mechanism of the oscillatory chlorite-iodide reaction"

I advise against stuffing the ballot box, since that ain't right, but do feel free to enlist the help of your friends!

Dying of cancer can be a horrible way to go, but as a cancer specialist I sometimes forget that there are diseases that are equally, if not more, horrible. One that always comes to mind is amyotropic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a motor neuron disease…

Well, I found them easy to identify without this post, knowing your history. And I voted for one, from each of us.

And, now that it is the "next day", as the family is wont to say:

Party Patriot spyder just brought this to my attention. You should have posted it on the WAAGNFNP blog today, esp. since I have an animal theme going. But I got in just in time to vote for you.
