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.)
The Skeptics' Circle is fast approaching
Time flies. The next edition of the Skeptics' Circle is due to hit the blogosphere on Thursday, June 23. This time around, it's being hosted by Anne at Anne's Anti-Quackery & Science Blog. So, skeptical bloggers, get going.
