    Re Chris Mooney
    A number of bloggers are having a fine old time making fun of Mr. Mooney, which I am sure will cause him to cry all the way to the bank. His post on the subject on his blog has also drawn some heavy snark.

    Re: “Don’t Become a Scientist”
    Its a nice rant, and I totally agree…. But. As a grad student at WUSTL (where Johnathan Katz remains employed), I feel like its my duty to point out that the man is certifiably insane.
    You can see his other writing here:
    Among his other beliefs?
    a) global warming is real, but good for us
    b) girls are bad at da scientizms because they have small lady-brains
    c) homophobia is cool, because da geighs spread the AIDses.
    d) bomb, bomb, bomb away
