Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
Happy Mothers' Day
Today is Mothers' Day, and I just want to take this opportunity to wish my mother and my wife's mother a happy day.
Unfortunately, there is a tinge of sadness to this day, because it's the first Mothers' Day since my grandmother died last fall; Mothers' Days just won't be the same.
