The Shorty Award nomination process ends tonight at midnight Pacific time (08:00 UT Saturday). If you have an existing Twitter account, please help my friend and quack-fighter Rachael Dunlop beat out that alt-med gufru* Joe Mercola. You can vote for her here, and you can get some backstory in this earlier post.

This is just the nomination process, but it simply makes my heart sing to know that someone who represents actual science and a real defender of health gets the most votes. Thanks.


"Gufru" = "guru" + "goof". This time I checked and found no definition for this word, so I now claim it for my own personal use when referring to someone who claims to be a guru, but is in fact a goofball peddler of nonsense.
