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 reminder
Don't forget, everyone. Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday next Thursday, the next edition of the Skeptics' Circle will be appearing at Mile Zero a day early, next Wednesday, November 23, rather than the usual Thursday. Get your best skeptical blogging sent to Tom by Tuesday night, and, prior to feasting next week, get your fill ahead of time of some great blogging from a skeptical viewpoint.
(Geez, I can't believe Thanksgiving is only one week away. Where did 2005 go?)
