* “The Facts In The Case Of Dr. Andrew Wakefield”: a great comic about vaccine panic. Via Pharyngula.

* “If Gandalf recited the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme” is far better than it has any right to be. Of course, there’s no bit so good you can’t completely drive it into the ground.

* The Republican Party has finally discovered its Platonic form. Via MeFi.

* Is the Obama administration a historic presidency or a colossal missed opportunity? Steve and I seem to come down on different sides on this—though I’d hasten to add there’s no reason it can’t be both, and I suppose the jury’s technically out until 2017.

* Naked Capitalism on the cap and trade scam.

* And some easy listening: David Harvey on the crises of capitalism.
