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.)
It's that time of year again...
What greeted us when we woke up this morning...the first significant snowfall of the year. It's not a lot, probably only a couple of inches at the most, but it's the first.
