I know I said no political posts, but this one is too good to pass up. Josh Rosenau at Thoughts from Kansas has a series of posts investigating extremist groups with pseudo-scientific and pseudo-historical agendas. And it starts with a simple skeptical question fueled by a rumor: Is a local candidate really funded by racist groups?
Skeptics' Circle is cool, and I really hope it survives. TfK may host it one day.
And I hope the visitors do some voting.
