End of the Week: Radio news and web site restored

By Carl Zimmer | August 28, 2009 6:06 pm

It has been a week of crazy writing–four pieces ranging from short to way too long. Hence little blogging. I apologize. I will reform. I will honor the blogger’s code. Monday.

In the meantime, two bits of news.

1. Radio: I will be on Coast to Coast AM at 10 pm Saturday PST/ 1 am EST to talk about bedbugs. We are in the midst of a bedbug Renaissance, and I intend to be its Dante. Details to come here.

In more radio news, I was just on New Hampshire Public Radio talking about global-warming-driven evolution. Listen here. (Oh–and for a kick, watch this hot-button two-fer drive a global-warming-denialist creationist craaaazy.)

2. Finally–carlzimmer.com is back in business. If you’re in New York, LA, Vancouver, New Haven, Denver, or Ithaca NY, be sure to check out the talk page. I’ll be adding more stuff very soon. (And please get in touch if you organize talks and want to chat about my giving one!)

A good weekend to all, free of bedbugs except the bedbugs of the mind…

  1. You want to traumatically inseminate our *minds*? I KNEW IT!!!

    I’m sure I don’t need to even ask, but you will inform us once any of those four pieces are ready for viewing, right?

    Carl: Not to worry. I actually depend on this blog to keep track of my own publications!

  3. Sorry, you can’t claim to have affected Corny: he was crazy years ago: the wolf-thylacine episode is a classic.

    Plainly, “plasticity” has too many syllables for creationsists. Besides, Darwin never said it, so you’re wrong…um, no, Darwin was wrong…well, dammit, somebody was wrong!

    No bedbugs here!
