Sheep cloner Ian Wilmut, Knighted. Vision neuroscientist and recent MRC head Colin Blakemore, stiffed for being “too controversial”.

I don’t understand these British things…

I posted on John Edwards views on medical marijuana before, here’s Mike Huckabee fielding a similar question:

Blogrolling: Oi

January 17, 2008

I’ve found myself utterly useless at the Blogrolling thing. I have one, and it does list many frequent reads. But I also read quite a number more blogs with relevance to the blogging here. I’ll try a little catching up. Some of these will be old favorites for many readers, perhaps you’ll see at least one new one though.

It may take me a bit to get these on the actual Blogroll. But in the meantime DearReader if you have a blog in mind that I just gotta see, drop a comment.

A Somewhat Old, But Capacious Handbag by MissPrism

and of course

Absinthe. I note she’s back with both sock monkeys and the Potter Pals. Dude.  The DM loves him some sock monkeys. And the whole DM fam has a version of the ticking clock a capella. Waitaminit, she’s really back

Many people complained when I descoped my blog. I had reasons for doing that back in August, but I also have some empathy for people who linked to my old posts. So, I’ve brought the blog back from the ashes (after a lot of work). I’ve also turned comments back on. I’ll still delete comments from jerks though. Hopefully the four month hiatus from blogging means that I’ve fallen off the radar screen of assholes who have nothing better to do with their time than search for feminist blogs to leave hate comments on.

This is so good. Go over there and welcome her back, would ya?
