Do Not Forget:


Jo Nova has a useful website where she reminds us of Gore's Apocalypse Now tomorrow.

This should be interesting to see if they will concentrate on science or something else. Talking about 'science or something else' reminds me of the Republican presidential candidates' debate last night. You may remember the discussion between some of the participants on Texas's use of the HPV vaccine, I think it was Rep. Bachmann and Gov. Perry and maybe Sen Santorum. Others may have joined in but all I remember about the interchange was wondering why no one mentioned the 'moral hazard' of offering the vaccine to young people so that they might not contract a sexually transmitted disease which sometimes leads to dysplastic/neoplastic cervical disease, especially in those with early and frequent sexual contacts. Some of the participants were 'offended' at various assertions by their opponents. I am constantly offended every time I hear or see an ad for Gardasil for those who have the option of choice.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
