Behold, dear readers, the first installment of an occasional, irregularly-spaced Blinded Trials feature!
For those of you who might have a passing interest in reading what BT contributors might have written for other outlets, from time to time I’ll post a round-up of pieces that have appeared elsewhere. (This was the suggestion I liked best when I asked if people would want to know about such things a little while ago.) I have no particular schedule in mind, and I’m sure they will not all be 100% Russell like this one happens to be.
Anyhow, in reverse chronological order:
- I wrote this about the Tribeca Film Festival’s decision to include an anti-vaccination “documentary” in its lineup. (Please note that Tribeca reversed this decision and pulled the screening a short time after this piece ran.) Of them all in this round-up, this is the one I’m proudest of.
- Eddie Izzard is very, very funny. He also is, I learned, quite an accomplished endurance athlete.
- For completists only, there is this bit of straight reportage (if you will) about a hospital worker who has been charged with stealing Fentanyl, and its implications for some patients.
The Daily Beast did away with its comments section a while ago (mirabile dictu!), so feel free to comment about any of them here. As of yet, I haven’t seen the need to lay out a commenting policy for this new blog. The one at the main Ordinary Times page will do (though mine would be, if anything, stricter). Even if you think I’m a nincompoop, please find a nice way of saying so.
