Well I am back, whew!  The FDA panel dicussion was amazing; an informative and productive discussion between a who's who of pathology about the regulation of digital pathology technology.  I'll post more about it on my Aperio blog; stay tuned.  And so now I am back home with two days of relaxation and sports watching ahead, possibly mixed with a little riding and maybe even some blogging...

Obamacare: Making someone else pay.  That's it in a nutshell, right?  If we're not going to require that people pay for themselves, then someone else must pay for them.  It is socialism, pure and simple, and as Margaret Thatcher famously observed, "the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money". 

An investigation of President Obama's apparent thin skin...  From ex-President Bush: "Why watch the nightly news when you are the nightly news?"

Man, this is masssively cool: the NASA iPhone app.  I just downloaded and installed it (on my iPod Touch), and am happily looking at all these great pictures from the Mars Exploration Rovers, Cassini, you name it.  I just wish they had an application like this for the PC; it would be even cooler with a big monitor... 

Hey, there's a Twitter client called Twee for the Palm Pre!  This is good news, not because I will ever use it (I won't, I am not a Twitter-er), but because it signals the mainstreaming of the Pre. 

Is it just me, or is the Internet really  s l o w  today?  Just me?  I figure there must be some kind of blockage in the pipes...  maybe some new news about Michael Jackson has been released? 

Predator of the day: A Nile Crocodile.  Look out... 

...especially if you're much smaller, like our ZooBorn of the day: a Mongoose pup.
