Lagniappe (science, business, and culture)

I notice that traffic continues at this site while I get everyone changed over to the new one. If you're reading this, you're not getting the latest, not for weeks now. I've moved the site, and this one won't be updated. For more Lagniappe, go here. Same blog, with a new site and a new name!

Ready To Move
Well, things are just about ready for the changeover. The next couple of days will be devoted to getting some new posts up at the new site, and making sure that everything's working the way it should. Drop by on Sunday night (EST) and I'll have the new URL up and more information. Leaving Blogspot will feel a bit strange, but I'm looking forward to a wider readership (and archives that work.) For a free service, though, I really can't complain. Blogger has been a great place to get all this going.

So, I'll see everyone next week over at the new place. It really feels like I should be ordering some cheese trays and vegetable platters or something. . .

Beginning of the End?
If reports tonight are to be believed - always a good question - then the final assault on Baghdad may well have started. Who knows how long it will take, but here's hoping that it's short. As Phil Carter's excellent site points out, the whole thing is to make the other army fight on the coalition's terms. A "fair fight" is the absolute last thing you want, since the object is to win, not to have an exciting contest. So however long it takes to set up such conditions is how long things will take - if the key is a rapid advance that disorganizes the opposition, so much the better.

I find myself even with enough mental overage to start working on material for the site again. Article are in the works on a potential new method to use liver cells, the costly failure of an attempted new obesity therapy, some new insights into Alzheimer's, and more. The advent of renewed blogging will coincide with the change I spoke of the other day.

But much larger, more important changes are at work in the world this evening. I'm off to read some more news about them. See you all soon. . .
