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.)
Skeptics' Circle emergency announcement
This week's host of the Skeptics' Circle, Kelly, has informed me that she is having serious technical difficulties with her blog, Time to Lean, which is presently inaccessible and may have even been deleted. More details will be forthcoming as I learn them, and there may come a need to change the venue of the Circle this week.
In the meantime, in the 45 hours or so remaining before the deadline, if you have not done so already, please send your entries to Kelly at email@example.com or to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
