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 Thanksgiving to all. Because I'm fortunate enough not to be on call today, I'm taking the day off in order to partake in the American tradition of stuffing oneself until one is no longer able to move (or stay awake) and to express thanks for all the good things in my life. My only regret is that I can't be in Chicago, where my family is gathering.
