I grow increasingly worried about Scott Carson. Facebook is sucking him away from his blog and, as a result, I have no direct way to link to various gems of his, such as this one:
Like a stopped clock that's right twice a day, Nietzsche hit the nail on the head in Beyond Good and Evil when he wrote "It is perhaps just dawning on five or six minds that physics, too, is only an interpretation and exegesis of the world...and not a world-explanation." The word "physics" here may stand for any of the empirical sciences, including psychiatry.
Come back, Scott! Before it's too late....

Witness that he never even responded to this cri de...well, whatever the French say.

I'm of two minds about it. It's fun because Scott and Mike Liccione are there, as well as some of my relatives.

On the other hand, I also feel obligated as it represents yet another tool for what publishers insist is 'building a platform' for my books.
