    A Question For the Audience

    You know, it does feel odd not to be writing anything about the political season, what with all the conventioneering going on.

    Here and There

    I wanted to take a moment to mention some interesting posts around Blogdom that readers may not have seen. In a response to the news on secretin for autism (see my post below), Dwight Meredith writes on what it was like at its peak of interest: Human secretin, swine secretin, herbal secretin (which as far… Read More
