See, I miss out on all the exciting news when my internet shits itself and goes slower than dialup for a few weeks due to what I assume is the prodigious porn-downloading abilities of sundry flatmates.

Here is George Bush’s press release announcing that he has nominated James W. Holsinger to be the new Surgeon General, in which capacity he will “be charged with providing the best scientific information available on how Americans can make smart choices that improve their health and reduce their risk of illness and injury.”

Here is the article about gay rights groups being less than thrilled with Holsinger’s nomination, given that several years ago he authored a paper for the Methodist church called “The Pathophysiology of Male Homosexuality”, in which he said that all scientific evidence pointed towards homosexuality causing injury and death.

The article has a link to a pdf of Hosinger’s original paper, for those who are interested.
