Skepticism

TS Tidbits, 8.20

  • Job or Home? Dennis Prager, a radio show host, asserts that “Women are preoccupied with making a home. Men are defined by their job.” He is usually reasonable, but I don’t know what to say to this one. Maybe ‘I wish he had some non-anecdotal data.’
  • Gardasil’s rise. The next article in the meritable NYT series, “The Evidence Gap,” looks at how Merck marketed its drug as a ‘must-have’ for girls. Interesting after Cassie’s post on the same topic.

Apologies for the lack of posting this past week. I finally got to go on a much-needed vacation. It turned out to be somewhat of a bust, but oh well–I’m back!

    Definitely love the nerd girls! Oh, I was one once upon a time. I guess now I am just a weird woman.
