A story is told in “The New Republic” about a certain entity that readers here might know well, at least longtime regulars.
In order to recharge his Tarial cells, Orac is taking a blog break, as difficult as it is for him to lay off antivaxxers for a while. He will return soon enough.
So Orac appeared on the Thinking Critically podcast to discuss the sorts of things he often rambles on about right here on Respectful Insolence.
Fear not, intrepid readers. Orac will return in a week, as he describes here in an update. He has not disappeared forever, although two and a half weeks is a long time.
Even Orac has times when other, more important things than laying down Insolence, require his attention. This is just such a time.
