happy Friday eve! PreCentral interview, Atul Gawande

I got interviewed at PreCentral yesterday! I think it went pretty well, and a surprising number of people clicked through to look at my apps and stuff.

Here’s Atul Gawande’s commencement address at Harvard Medical school. He talked about how medicine needs to move from a “cowboy” culture to a “pit crew” one.

The New York same-sex marriage bill passed the State Assembly (as it has several times before), but its future is unclear. Supporters say they have 31 of the needed 32 votes in the State Senate, but the Republicans (who have a majority in the State Senate) aren’t even sure they’re going to bring it up. But it sounds like it’s either going to happen or it won’t by the end of this week.

What to say to someone who’s sick and how to help without being an imposition.

I’m not paying a great deal of attention to the Republican primary, but apparently Tim Pawlenty has proposed more tax cuts that are significantly larger than the Bush tax cuts. (and of course, the vast majority going to the top 1% or 0.1%…)
