The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Concern About Todd Akin

For John, BLUFAn assertion at The New Yorker magazine that Republicans don't believe in science.  Also, a tamping down of Democratic Expectations for 6 November.  Nothing to see; just move along.

I earlier put up a blog post that touched on the Missouri senate race between incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill and Missouri Representative Todd Ayers.  (And thanks to Chris for enhancing that post by point out that the free phones mentioned came in under the reign of Ronaldus Magnus.)

Over at The New Yorker is an article titled "If Todd Akin Wins".  Not withstanding his gaff with the phrase “legitimate rape” and the subsequent round condemnation from all quarters, he stayed in the race.  It now seems The New Yorker thinks he again has some chance of winning, and thus the article.  One of the hits on Rep Akin is that he is (a) stupid or (b) doesn't understand about science or (c) all of the above.  In the comments to the article was this snarky item by someone who apparently believes in Darwin and evolution but hates the messiness of science.

Science is a vast left-wing conspiracy.
I wonder if that means that engineering is a vast right-wing conspiracy?
