Unsolicited Advice

Today it's colder than Boston in January, so I got home a bit early to stoke the woodstove. In the mailbox is an envelope announcing "You were right, Cervantes, the news media are biased -- just not in the way you think." Uh huh. I open it up and it's an ad for the Christian Science Monitor.

Here's my unsolicited advice: wait to become a Christian Scientist until after you've had your appendix out.

Won't get back to the mind/body thing until tomorrow. As you may have heard, researchers have to spend all their time writing proposals. I'm no exception and I'm in the middle of three of them, all due at the same time. So catch up with me on Friday.
