I suspect that very few of you are following the fussin' and feudin' over at Scienceblogs, where Orac is whimpering impotently and PZ has gone on strike and a crapload of people, most of whom I've never read, are leaving, and that fewer of you care (assuming that "fewer" is even a valid mathematical concept in this instance). In a nutshell, Seed Media sort of fucked all of the Sb crowd by starting a nutrition blog written by PepsiCo, and apparently none of the Sb bloggers have seen paychecks (wotta blogging concept, but then, I don't pretend to significance) since spring.
I've altered the sidebar link for Orac, who is for me a daily read, to his permalink, in case he bolts. And I only go to PZ when someone tells me there's something special there.
I know that most of you don't give a fuck about the Science section, and that at least one of you actively dislikes Orac and another thinks PZ is an ass. Kiss the cow, whatever. You know the sidebar substitutes for my favorites list, or for a private online links list, though it's poorly maintained at best.
Anyway, just wanted to share a little, and knock down yesterday's spittlefest directed at my still-beloved BFF.
