It was a dark and stormy night...

I just vacated my temporary internship position at the Smithsonian...

I just received the first round of comments and corrections paper that I submitted for peer review...

Holy crap, does this situation sound somewhat familiar?

The irony! The irony! I could make such a Sternberg joke right now! ;-) But peer review is not for whiners.

(Actually, the bulk of my paper survived and I found the criticism to be well founded. After going to SAA this year, I actually disagree with parts of my own paper now.)

Ah, back to the drawing board. That's the name of the game. Plus, I'm working on other articles and projects - while sitting in the hot tub. A strong stomach for rejection - I has it!

(I'd better have it...)

Perhaps you should critically review this:
Hatfill, S.J., Bohm, L., ( 1991) Morphological differentiation of K562 Leukemia cells induced by
Thalidomide. Leukemia Res. 15; (2), 129-136.

YOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS (joke)
BUT YOU ARE AMAZING (serious)

All the more so
Because you are
So unaware of
Your own faith

Well, there is "faith" to which religious people refer, which means a collection of beliefs. I try not to have beliefs. Even though I am very opinionated, I actually have a series of beliefs that hover around an issue like a thermostat hovering around a temperature (or like how my scale hovers around the accurate display of my weight, but don't get me started). For example, gun control: my beliefs about this are a series of "if-then" statements: if a homeowner has a gun safe, and/or keeps guns out of reach of children, and/or teaches children proper gun handling skills, I am not opposed to having guns around small children. If a homeowner is irresponsible, leaves the guns out, and gets drunk a lot, I am for taking those guns away.

Then there is "faith" which has to do with trust. I try to have a few beliefs as possible, but the older I am, the fewer beliefs I need, because I trust that I will exercise my judgment, and I trust that others will do the same. Life is a leap in the dark. So I have "faith" because I'm willing to take risks.

The older others get, the less risks they take, whereas I am taking more risks than I did when I was younger.

Incidentally, while it is not as rigorously juried as is American Archivist, I have submitted a second article, to Skeptical Inquirer.

I HEAR THAT WEIGHT IS WHAT BROKE THE WAGON DOWN .

For example, gun control: my beliefs about this are a series of "if-then" statements: if a homeowner has a gun safe, and/or keeps guns out of reach of children, and/or teaches children proper gun handling skills, I am not opposed to having guns around small children. If a homeowner is irresponsible, leaves the guns out, and gets drunk a lot, I am for taking those guns away.

THAT’S AN EXAMPLE OF A FORM OF FLEXIBLE CHRISTIANITY –ON GUN CONTROL IN AMERICA. .—Philosophically great, but legislatively really challenging -


Then there is "faith" which has to do with trust. I try to have a few beliefs as possible, but the older I am, the fewer beliefs I need, because I trust that I will exercise my judgment, and I trust that others will do the same.


DO WE HAVE ANY REALLY VALID IDEA ABOUT WHERE OUR ‘JUDGMENT’ COMES FROM?

Life is a leap in the dark. So I have "faith" because I'm willing to take risks.

RISK TAKERS SPRING FROM ACCEPTABLE RESULTS FOLLOWING RISK TAKING, I think

The older others get, the less risks they take, whereas I am taking more risks than I did when I was younger.


intelligence is one of the highest forms of blessing it can enhance everything else (and is the main reason mankind has dominion over the earth) CAN ANY ONE CLAIM TO BE THE BE ALL AND END ALL SOURCE OF THEIR OWN LIFE/EXHISTENCE/STATE OF MIND?



Incidentally, while it is not as rigorously juried as is American Archivist, I have submitted a second article, to Skeptical Inquirer.


I am looking for it. – Out of respect and admiration - --not so much because of content (which is unknown to me).

Well, you can't look for it until it is published.

1) You're off-topic. No more long lectures. I don't read them. This is not your blog.

2) No more ALL CAPS SHOUTING. I don't read them, either.

Now, play by the rules.
