Here’s a blog carnival I can get behind

After the last blog carnival I mentioned, here’s one I can really get behind.

Regulars around here know that I’m a 24 junkie. I have to get my fix of Jack Bauer’s adventures (including his uncanny ability to get to almost anywhere in southern California within 20 minutes, regardless of traffic conditions) every Monday night, and, if for some reason I can’t (out of town at a meeting, the fairly uncommon call for emergency surgery, whatever), I have to ask my long-suffering wife tape it for me. The coming of my former favorite guilty pleasure, The Apprentice, to Monday nights just means that I won’t be watching the Donald say, “You’re fired” anymore. (Here’s a funny take on that very issue.)

Now I can get my fix in the blogosphere with a new blog carnival, The Carnival of Bauer. So can you.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
