Another Side Effect Of Chemotherapy: 'Chemo Brain' — I think this may be another take on a study I recently linked to reports of, but this one is very well explained. (Via Lisa Costello.)

The Best Astronomy Images of 2012 — The Bad Astronomer flogs the beauty of the universe. (Via [info]scarlettina.)

Florida Pawn Shop Owner Will Sell No More Guns Forever“I dropped my daughter off at school this morning. That was enough for me,” James said. “Conscience wins over making money.” Now, if only the rest of gun-owning and gun-selling America would have the same epiphany of conscience.

Hobby Lobby takes human biology to court, losesIt doesn’t matter if the evangelical gazillionaire owners of Hobby Lobby “believe” that emergency contraception causes abortions. It does not do that. Nor does it matter if this belief is passionately sincere and sincerely passionate. Sincerity and passion won’t make it any less incorrect. That actually describes most of the conservative movement these days. Sincere, passionate, and wrong on the plain face of the facts regarding everything from evolution to guns to gay marriage to climate change to supply side economics. Except I doubt the sincerity of much of the conservative leadership and commentariat. The grift has become bleedingly obvious in many cases, from Sarah Palin to Rush Limbaugh.

The Hobby Lobby thingie puts me in mind of some of the scary sh!t I'm learning in Bar Prep (we're on ConLaw now). Roe vs Wade protections have eroded pretty darned far since I first studied 'em in Jr High (not long after the Supremes decided the case) and certainly in the 20ish years since I studied 'em again in law school.
