- Woot, anti-vax lost in court today. This ruling makes no difference on reality (science figures that out, not lawyers), but it's nice to see the law (and, judging from the stories I've been seeing in the last few days, public opinion) matching reality.
- Speaking of anti-vax, the jackass who started it all may have done so to try to sell his own vaccine. This is a very special kind of evil.
- Um. Stem cells may have cured AIDS. Holy shit.
- A biologist has conducted another study of the "25 Random Things" meme on Facebook. I love memetics, it's awesome to see it becoming a thing.
- Obama has dumped Republican Senator Judd Gregg as potential Secretary of Commerce. The statement about it is beautiful.
- Iowa is considering a bill to send all of its electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, with the bill only going into effect if 270 electoral votes worth of states enact similar measures. It's a neat way to get rid of the electoral college without a Constitutional amendment, but it's weird to be coming out of Iowa. If all you needed was the majority of votes, would you bother visiting the state ranked 30th in population? Weird.
