ThrushArt writing guru James Gurney with a lovely little piece of visual and print poetry.

42 Essential 3rd Act Twists — Hilarious.

A feisty embuggerance — Humorous academic neepery with respect to Google Scholar.

Green Genes — Inheritable transgenics. Wow.

HD 209458b: Comparing Exoplanet Atmospheres — More wow from Centauri Dreams.

No Vaccine? A Different Risk — Yep. Antivax borders on criminal behavior, and it's stupid besides, because the risk being transferred away to other people's kids is being replaced by a far more significant risk to the antivaxer's own kids.

America — A WWII vet and lifelong Republican talks about gay marriage and equality in a very sensible way. (Via Making Light.)

To the no vaccine peeps. Not only are they endangering and risking their own children but they put at risk anyone with compromised immune systems who cannot take vaccines. I can't believe someone would choose taking a chance on polio over a vaccine! Maybe the anti-vaccine folks should spend some time in children's hospital...I'm getting my swine flu shot as soon as it's available.
