Believe it

Orac writes to inform me he's hosting a new biweekly round up of posts called Skeptics' Circle. It was created by St. Nate. Think of it like a "Carnival of the Incredulous." Or, Grand Rounds with more evidence.

Maybe someday I'll submit a post to them about the Mickey Mantle liver transplant story. Many patients and potential donors think the transplant process is fixed because of that tale; the record should be set straight. Anyway, I think that's the kind of writing Orac's crew is looking for. Check it out.

(...and if someone hasn't started a Carnival of the Carnivals, the recent explosion in weekly roundups suggests an opportunity...)

(UPDATE: I was foolish to think this hadn't been seized upon, long ago.)
