    I lucked out on Benedict XVI's resignation.  There were three other diaries on it, but mine was the only one with a link.  (Go figure.)  On the other hand, I wrote the first diary on Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" campaign, and that got fairly ignored.

    Thank you for the compliment (and yes I recognized it as such).  My colleagues always bring me their writing to critique on style.  Scientific writing can be true death in the wrong hands.  It's my theory that communication of physics is so bad because only students who share the same idiosyncrasies can learn from other physicists, which makes the problem self-perpetuating.  Better communicators in science could make such a difference in spurring technological development in this country.
