When attacked by chemotherapy, all cancer cells have the ability to start hibernating in order to wait out the threat, finds new research. The cancer cells hijack an evolutionary survival mechanism to transition into a state o...

Its Time To Cast Your Vote For The Duke Of Dukes

Alas, Michele Bachmann’s unhinged diatribes about  terrorist Muslims infiltrating the U.S. government could not top Dinesh D’Souza’s batshit. Mark Sanford’s romantic adventures were deemed by readers to be no match for Dick Cheney shooting his buddy in the face — and then forcing said buddy to apologize for Cheney having shot him in the face. And so, the people have spoken: Dinesh and Dick advance to the Round of 16. The play-ins are over and we now have our tournament is set. The day has ar...

Comment on black pepper tofu and eggplant by Margaret

"If there were a TV show that portrayed your family as a clueless bunch of snobs and philanderers who helped drive a mentally fragile young princess to despair, would you watch it?"

My answer is hell, yes. The question is posed in the first paragraph of a NYT article with a headline that also asks a question — "Royal Watchers Wonder: Do the Royals Watch ‘The Crown’?"  So I assume the TV show in question is an extremely high-quality production with great writing and acting and cinematography that doesn't purport to tell a strictly accurate story but to dramatize everything for artistic purposes. I'd love to watch. They're already using me and "I" am being consumed by th...
