Carnival barking

Three blog carnivals to hawk today:

1. The History Carnival

2. RINO Sightings (May Day Show Trial Edition)

3. Grand Rounds has been delayed. It was supposed to show up at Polite Dissent, but when I checked out his site to look for it this morning, his blog was gone and a site advertising cheap airfares was in its place. Scott just sent out an e-mail stating:

I’m not sure what happened. When I went to bed last night at 2 AM, everything was perfect and a 50-item Grand Rounds was posted. When I got this morning, my site had been hijacked. Arrgh!!

Anyway, the folks at Hosting Matters assure me the site should be restored soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I’ll post a plug for Grand Rounds tonight or tomorrow, assuming Scott’s site is back up by then.

ADDENDUM: Scott’s back, and so is Grand Rounds!

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.
