Okay, this is a thing. I've not done this before, but since IBAM is doing it, so shall I. It's the 12 month review of blog posts. It's the first line and a link to the whole post of the first thing from each month.
December: No smoking almost everywhere.
November: Medical School funding is one part of the problem that is driving the issues with career pathways, also known as the too many mouths at the trough problem.
October: I went to NYU to give a talk.
September: One of the hardest things to learn is how one’s effort translates into output.
July: I am sorry, but I am actually doing science!
June: Sometimes the current incarnations of culture wars spills over into the NIH grantsmanship (grantspersonship?) arena.
May: Power often corrupts and absolute power often corrupts absolutely, but the greatest corruption of all comes from withholding power, which grants victory to tyrants. -- Shlomo Riskin
April: When I was at MRU, I lived near the hospital and walked to work.
March: First, a word about exhaustion.
February: Wally wrote: (edited a bit for space, but go read the whole thing) I love being a postdoc – ... we don’t always have choices as to where we live....

January: This post is my attempt to reduce my grumpiness index.
