I Nominate Former WWR Contributor Tom

for the University of Oxford’s Charles Simonyi Professorship in the Public Understanding of Science.

Sure, blogging here wore out his patience for the willfully ignorant and stubbornly stupid, leaving him an irascible scientist-cum-former-blogger, but I feel confident that such an honor would return him to his previous kinder, gentler, warmer, and fuzzier state of being.

If not, it’d be fun to watch anyway.

And, man, think of the chicks!

    I’d like to thank the honorable Andy, and accept this nomination immediately upon receipt of guaranty that the chicks will be forthcoming.

    Dang it, wait. Lemme ask my wife for permission.


    :( She says I’ll put my eye out.

    They say Oxford girls are very sharp, so your wife is probably right.

    Thought you might get a kick out of this (or maybe just shake your head in disgust):
