John Gillette at the Bettendorf Public Library cites Mainspring as an examplar of steampunk — In the same breath as The Difference Engine, even.

io9 accuses me of Intelligent Design — Not inaccurately, as it happens. Some nice analysis of me and Karl Schroeder over there.

3D Logic — Tetris meets Rubik’s Cube. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

More on vaccination protestors — Sorry, but your wilful misunderstanding of medical science does not trump my child’s health and safety. (Thanks to lt260.)

Cancer Test for Women Raises Hope, and Concern — Interesting article about the ethics of cancer testing. As a cancer patient, I was (and am) extremely interested in all possible data, even that with variable degrees-of-confidence. (Thanks to lt260.)

So, Yankee Stadium Takes This No Moving During “God Bless America”-Thing Rather Seriously — Right, because patriotism is about a song. Instead of, say, not starting pointless foreign wars which kills thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of other human beings. (Thanks to willyumtx.)

The Yankee Stadium stop was where we transferred on the subway to get to my grandmother's house, and I have fond memories of the ball park. This was just plain DUMB, and I hope the guy sues the pants off them!

::Crosses off Yankee Stadium as a place I'd ever go::

Good thing we have George Steinbrenner's thugs to ensure that we're sufficiently patriotic.
