A blog presenting excerpts from great papers in economics, math, physics and statistics.
If you had trouble accessing this site over the last week, I apologize. My blog software and hosting company, Typepad.com--usually excellent; I strongly recommend it--has suffered a very nasty distributed-denial-of-service attack. I hope the worst is over now.
I, for one, am not at all sorry to see them go.

You may notice one particular blog is missing.
My minions--see Despicable Me--are currently massing to demand a recount.

(The post at the first link attacks an article whose' premise is that we shouldn't be eating foods banned in Europe. Two additional points: 1) science shouldn't be conducted just by majority vote and 2) why should we believe the Europeans are right? Their regulators permitted pregnant women to take thalidomide. And France gets about 75% of its electricity from nuclear power--are they right about that, too? Why don't "consumer advocates" want to follow them on that?)
Well put. The conclusion of a fine smackdown by Alex Massie: "The Iraq War's Real Victims? Laurie Penny and the Narcissistic Left".
That would be the blog you're reading. (Rank as of 9/26.)
My employer's site, on the other hand, is ranked 2,309.
From the fine, new-this-month blog, "Senator Blutarsky".
Question: "Can I speak to a faculty member about a grammatical question?"
Answer: Hell no, you poor peon.
