- New York Times: More Physicians Say No to Endless Workdays
I'm glad to see that more doctors are ditching the habit of working endless hours. Though I appreciate that a small-town doctor or a specialist has an obligation to always be available, it's great that doctors who have a choice are working 40-hour weeks. The inventor of the residency program wrote of a doctor's obligations: "What about the wife and babies if you have them? Leave them." Enough of that.
- Good: Scientist Beloved by Climate Deniers Pulls Rug Out from Their Argument
A climate change doubter funded by the Koch brothers presented a report to Congress on climate change the other day. He intended to expose existing global temperature data as inaccurate. And, after a bunch of research he discovered that…climatologists are absolutely correct. AWK-ward.
That last article about the climate scientist who acknowledged that developing facts were forcing him to revise his doubtful hypothesis on global warming was interesting. But hey: speaking of people who were proven wrong, can we revisit how everyone said that Glenn Beck’s show was going to get canceled — I thought my comment about fixed contract values versus declining revenues from ad sales based on his shrinking viewership was particularly well-delivered, if you don’t mind me saying — and ipublius said we were full of crap and didn’t know what we were talking about? :)
