I did change the blogroll to reflect the new sites for James Rummel, Common Sense and Wonder, and ChicagoBoyz. That's ChicagoBoyz.net, not .com - trust me, there's a difference.
And I'm getting some reading done. Some titles: Nature via Nurture by Matt Ridley, Linked by Albert-Laszlo Baranasi, Prime Obsession by Andrew Sullivan favorite John Derbyshire, The Frozen-Water Trade by Gavin Weightman and a few others.
Nature via Nurture is weeks of blogfodder all by itself. If you like it you might check out his earlier book "Genome"
