Bora Zivkovic to let me know what his bloggers are writing at Scientific American. Today he emailed me about what one of his writers--Ilana Yurkiewicz--posted Saturday on the gay parents study, which I commented on last week. It's an interesting, original piece, which I recommend. Its point is that even if the study--which claimed to find deficits in the children of women who had had a same-sex relationship, whatever that means--had been the most rigorous study imaginable, it still wouldn't matter.
I'm happy to point to that piece, and I want to take this opportunity to remind you that we read the emails you send us, and we want to be told about what you think are especially good or bad posts, either by you or your colleagues, or by folks you have run across in your morning reading. I get a lot of these through my Twitter and Facebook friends, but I miss a lot. Google news searches favor traditional outlets, and Google blog searches don't seem very thorough either.
So, please--let us know about work that we should praise--or critique. We want as many as possible of you to be in this conversation with us, talking about science and medical and environmental news. If you're not quite sure whether to send us a note or not, just think about this:
