Essentially, I am busy because I have a full life ... and I am really grateful for it.

But for now I would share a remarkable piece of writing I was reading last week about the development of laboratory mice and the use of them in todays scientific community. Not that I agree with everything that is said in the article, but it is an interesting and provocative read and if you have time and any interest in the way scientific research happens in the US today, it is worth a look (if the link above does not work, here is the web address (http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/the_mouse_trap/2011/11/lab_mice_are_they_limiting_our_understanding_of_human_disease_.html)
