I have a super busy schedule today, so how about you cruise over to Scienceray and look at their pretty photos of…insects eating each other. This lovely robber fly is a great example.
You can also just surf around in stboed’s photostream–lots of neat photos like this one there.
Also, since there are lots of academics here–how do you feel about Ms. Biden wanting her title to be used?
As someone who is always called Miss Bug Girl by students, while my male colleagues get to be called Dr. Whosit, I understand where she’s coming from. (And I bet none of the male faculty I work with have ever been mistaken for a secretary.)
Would anyone have bothered to write about this if Dr. Biden was a dude? (Aside from the wonderful happenstance of a gay couple as VPs during Freedom to Marry Week.)

Talk amongst yourselves. Back Tuesday!
