random ramblings from a geek doctor

Fun with bad science: Stroller Edition
Shannon was kind enough to forward me a link to Jezebel's post highlighting a recent study done in Scotland that purports to show a benefit for kids who face their parents in their strollers. I'm not one to care a...



Hope he didn't need that left shoulder...
Paging through a few themes in the newly-online Life photo archives this morning, I came across what has to be one of my favorite parenting photos ever......



The U.S. Senate, now with one less convicted felon
Hooray -- AP has called the Alaska Senate seat for Mark Begich, confirming that Ted Stevens now trails Begich by more votes (3,724) than can be made up by the remainder of uncounted ballots (2,500). That's certainly great news; that...



How big IS Will?
Seriously, tell me that you don't get a huge smile when you watch this: How damn cute....



Losing a limb for the Presidency
While completely practical (and probably wise), there's something a bit sad about the fact that Barack Obama will more or less be forced to give up e-mail access upon his ascension to the Presidency. E-mail communication has, in many ways,...



Back when the Mall was very different
Photos like this wig me out: For those of you who aren't familiar with Washington, DC, that's a view from the top of the Washington Monument looking westward, along the Reflecting Pool. towards the Lincoln Memorial; the photo was taken...



iBabyMonitor
I've probably told Shannon a half-dozen times that there was an untapped iPhone app niche for impromptu baby monitor apps; it looks like that niche is now starting to get populated....



The Cheney version of the Office of the Veep, ensconsed in the Plum Book
Today heralded the release of the Plum Book, which is the listing of all the 7,000-plus political appointment positions available in the U.S. Government; it's a publication I never knew existed until I saw mention of it on the Presidential...



Yes, we did!
Obama's victory last night was literally one of the most amazing events of my thirty-five-year lifetime; I sat there with Shannon, among a group of close friends and new friends, and soaked in the history of the moment. (Annabelle,...



Even GOP operatives think she's unprepared
AudioPlayer.setup("http://jzone.queso.org/audio/player.swf", { width: 290 }); Ah, gotta love when operatives start straying from their talking points. Former Reagan-era Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger appeared on NPR's Talk of the Nation yesterday to chat about his support for John McCain, and...



Put the baby down and step away!
I'm pretty sure I figured out a nearly-failsafe test for whether or not someone is a parent: get them to sit down in front of this video, and see if he or she can get through the end of it....



Fundamental differences
There's a huge part of me that wonders if there's anyone at all who's as positively passionate about John McCain's candidacy as Charles Alexander is about Barack Obama's. I'm not being facetious -- I'm totally serious. The past month or...



Fun with Nate Silver's statistics
Like thousands of others, I'm a huge fan of the things that Nate Silver is doing over at FiveThirtyEight.com -- bringing serious statistics to the forefront of this year's political analysis makes for much more interesting thought and perspective, and...



Joe the Plumber, meet Sarah the Socialist
Given the GOP's turn to calling Obama a socialist these days, I've been focused on explaining to folks how McCain's own off-the-cuff mortgage crisis solution is more "socialist" than anything proffered by the Democratic Party. Others, though, are keenly noting...



The danger of Palin's choice of words
Not that Anil needs any link love from the low-rent likes of me, but I'd be remiss in not pointing out the sheer awsomeness of his post this morning on Sarah Palin's choice of language. As always, Anil has an...
