Bad logic meets good science

Mostly I keep Truth Tables and Bee Policy relatively separate -- what does logic have to do with science anyway, right? But I've just posted a critique of a New York Times op-ed that is relevant to recent discussion about women in science, and the Right's inability to deconstruct. ("Critique" is perhaps flattering -- it's more of a rant.) Bee Policy readers who don't normally keep up with my other blog may find it interesting.

Sorry for OT, but I have posted my review of "Snooze or Lose" today...

Funny! I just read it, right before seeing your comment... and sent the link to our publicity director, who had just gotten an email about it from someone else. What was that thing one of my students wanted to write a research paper about... oh right, morphic resonance. Maybe I shouldn't have told him it didn't exist.

Oh, it was YOU who had just emailed Matt! The morphic resonance shrinks somewhat.

You are awesome, Bora.

Thank you! I hope they like the review. I wish I could get a few more copies to distribute around the community....

Subtle. ;>

I'll see what I can do. Actually, even just emailing Matt and asking him might be the best way to go.
