Here are some Sunday links for you (with extra linkyness since there won’t be one next week). First, I blind you with science:
- E. coli, chimps, and antibiotic resistance. Oh my!
- A crocodilian with a fish tail! Watch the creationists deny that this is an important fossil…
- Speaking of fossils, the Hairy Museum of Natural History has an interesting post about a Long Lizard with very Short Arms.
- ScienceBlogling Nick reports on the sanity the British government is showing towards drugs and alcohol.
- Darksyde has a good post about adult stem cells.
- Over at Effect Measure, is an ongoing series detailing how one should read a science paper with lots of math. If you’ve never read primary scientific literature (or even if you have), check it out.
- Don’t forget to see how your favorite journals stack up. Check out eignFACTOR.org.
The other stuff:
- I describe what I mean by willful ignorance. There’s a parody of the anti-gay movement that does too.
- Every year during March Madness, like clockwork, someone brings the hypocrisy of the NCAA. But Robert Lipsyte does it really well.
- Bill Maher hits it out the park in describing what treason really looks like.
- From ‘the Washington Post editor Fred Hiatt is a fucking moron’ files: The Liberal Avenger, Glenn Greenwald, and David Obey.
- Here’s a shitty deal: a municipal employee was fired in Massachusetts because she asked for healthcare. Isn’t healthcare one of the benefits of a government job?
- Speaking of fubar healthcare, the military has found another to screw over veterans: the 5-13 discharge.
- Did Karl Rove harm national security by sending 95% of his emails through a non-government email server?
- AIPAC is still insane. Here’s someone else’s take on the insanity.
- There’s an op-ed in the Jerusalem Post about religion…and it’s sane. Haredi violence to ensue shortly…
- Christian conservatives: when they’re not thinking about TEH GAY SEX, they’re thinking about boobies.
- Josh Marshall and digby remind us (and Michael Kinsley) what Attorneygate is all about.
- Kevin Drum explains how the U.S. journalists became “quivering masses of jelly.”
- The American Prospect has an interesting series of articles on work and the family.
