Odds And Sods
Since I haven't been able to come up with anything worthy of blogging for a while, here's some links for y'all to look at.
The Illinois Student Senate yearly letter drive to flood the mailboxes of the state legislature has moved online - and ends today at 5pm. So, if you haven't already, drop by and make sure your state rep. and state senator know what's important to you.
Matt O. of The Great Society, guest posting at Firedoglake, writes about the rather explicit racism over at Little Green Footballs, and the feeble attempts to cover it up. Stuff like this is why I immediately discount anything coming from that blog/community.
PZ Myers of Pharyngula spends some time discussing the rather simple difference between RU-486 and 'Plan B' emergency contraception. If you're somewhat clueless about the subject (or even if you're not) it's worth reading.
Orac at Respectful Insolence relates an inserted foreign object story (yes, one of those stories.)
El Reg reports that the Royal Society has had enough of this creationism nonsense and has decided to start doing something about it. The first move of their assault will be a presentation, "Why Creationism is Wrong and Evolution is Right," that will be webcast live from London. If you'll be by a computer at 1730 GMT (that's 12:30 pm CDT), it'll probably make for an interesting lunch break for those readers of mine who actually work for a living.
If you haven't watched it yet, Strong Bad had his sesquicentenn-email last week.
Lastly (but definitely not least), there's new Doctor Who this weekend. The show's page on the BBC website has been updated accordingly. For those who can't wait for the new episode "New Earth" to hit Bittorrent, the webcast of Shada with Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor taking the part of Tom Baker's Fourth (and Sean Biggerstaff - Oliver Wood in the Harry Potter movies - doing some voice work as well) is still up for your viewing pleasure.
