    On the NYMag piece, it's weird to see the tide turning, while the quality of coverage remains poor. It feels dirty, having opinion shifting in our favor, while real understanding remains largely so abysmally low. The understanding will no doubt come, in short or long, it's just a weird transition.

    Lukewarm reception from AfME, which I don't suppose should surprise us.

    What's all this "new evidence" stuff from NICE (and, of course, AfME)?

    It's not really new evidence, is it. More like suppressed data which demonstrates that the existing 'evidence' base was a sham, as many people have been saying for years. That's rather an important distinction, especially in terms of consequences for those involved (which maybe answers my original question).
