Good reading

The Sixty-Million-Year Virus - A great article by Carl Zimmer analyzing the evolutionary implications of the retroviral DNA found in animal genomes. Follow the links in his article; there are some great journal articles there. And, if you're in the unfortunate situation of knowing some creationists / IDists, send this article to them as even more evidence that humans do in fact share a recent common ancestor with primates.

The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons: Medical "science" as dubious as it gets - A reminder from Orac that just because something has the word "journal" in the title, it isn't necessarily a good scientific journal.
