When Science And Politics Collide

A buddy of mine has a brand new blog called The Scientific Activist where he gets to merge his three favorite subjects- Science, Politics, and the Media. Two posts that I need to bring to your attention here:

First, is this one where he highlights a NY Times article talking about partisan neurons and what portions of the brain are stimulated by political discussions. That's an interesting read.

Second, using his finely honed research skills he breaks the story about Bush hack and NASA PR man George Deutsch not being a college graduate. Yup, that's who I want disseminating NASA info.

This blog should enter your daily read rotation, or if you use one, your syndication account. And did I mention he's a Rhodes Scholar?
