In other news, I seem to have eleven Honorable Mentions in the Dozois-edited YBSF, according to a little birdie. No linkie, unfortunately.
Detecting Life in Enceladus’ Plume — Astrobiology, baby!
Monkey Business: Keith Chen’s Monkey Research — An old article on monkeys and economics. Money shot: The data generated by the capuchin monkeys, Chen says, “make them statistically indistinguishable from most stock-market investors.” (Thanks to danjite.)
Barack Obama’s super marketing machine — The politics of marketing and the marketing of politics.
American inequality highlighted by 30-year gap in life expectancy — “The US finds itself ranked 42nd in global life expectancy and 34th in survival of infants to age.” Yep, that market-based healthcare finance we have is really paying off.

I’m glad the GOP has done such a good job of protecting me from those evils.
