    I read this yesterday after Tom's Co-Cure post. I will be mentioning it in a blog I hope to finish in a month or two. My current unfinished blog is on political issues, and the one after that addresses the SMC by developing the theme of my current blog.

    Spin machines have no place in science or science reporting. However, to foreshadow what I will be saying later, its very hard to directly oppose them. There are better ways, and I will be discussing those.

    I hope the PACE trial goes down in history as the worst done and reported trial ever.

    A bit OT, but I thought I'd post this here from Fiona Fox:

    I thought it was pretty funny, considering how poor the research behind these stories was, and that they were really just churnalism and spin.
