jaborwhalky with Jay Lake Dorito noodle doom mac and cheese — A recipe in honor of my cancers.

Charles A. Tan with a takedown of International Science Fiction Reshelving day — What he said. (Via Andrew Wheeler.)

Superconductors to Wire a Smarter Grid — More than you probably wanted to know about the US power infrastructure. Still, cool stuff.

Bad Science on the Iraqi bomb detection wands — This is as insane, and in its way deadly, as Thabo Mbeki's AIDS denialism. US conservatism have their global warming denial and evolution psychoses, liberals have their antivaxers, but it's nice to know that antiscience lunacy is not just for Americans.

China's fear of a black president

The superconductor story is fascinating. I have a small bit of experience in energy politics--once upon a time part of the crew that tried to replace PGE with a PUD. Still think it's a better choice, especially in light of Enron. The degree to which PGE had its hooks in liberal Democratic party politics in Oregon during the late 70s and early 80s would surprise a lot of people, I think.

Huh. I could write that story, that is, if a couple of friends of mine haven't done that already. Just finding the market for it...
