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.)
Tangled Bank #20
Tangled Bank #20 is now up at JasmineCola. Once again, the best science blogging in the blogosphere over the last couple of weeks is made available in one compact, nicely annotated package for your reading pleasure. Now that I've been plugged into the science blogosphere a few weeks, I've been finding that often I've already read many of the posts aggregated in every Tangled Bank. However, there are always at least one or two excellent posts that I haven't seen, and this edition is no different. (I love it when bloggers who haven't yet contributed send good writing about science in.) Check it out.
