Thanks to so many of you who left comments or posted your thoughts on your own blogs. I was actually out on a vacation day yesterday with my partner (sans kids, a very rare occurrence which will be the topic of a future post). Apologies to those of you whose excellent comments were caught in moderation--not sure why that happened, but they're published now and I'm looking into my settings so moderation is not the default. Here was the original post, along with posts from Mike Dunford on seeing it from the dad POV in his new digs at The Questionable Authority, and Janet Stemwedel in her new location at Adventures in Ethics and Science.
In the meantime, since I'm already feeling guilty about not having time this week to stay connected here on Scientopia and meet & greet all the new neighbors, I'll point out a few great posts I caught today:
Is it Luck, or do I Suck? by Candid Engineer
First Defense and the Talking Jitters by Prof-like Substance
Grrrr by Professor in Training (this is sure to be my week starting Monday)
