Jonah Goldberg has a good column today. And we have a seemingly unrelated tidbit - Jim Lindgren of the Volokh Cabal, via the InstaPundit, correctly notes that the newspaper account of the "Lying Study" is misleading.
The Radiological Society of North America has a more plausible summary of the study at their website, which addresses the flaw noted by Prof. Lindgren.
Now, there is a subtle connection between the brain scan story and my deeply incisive commentary on the Goldberg piece, which is this - I defy these radiologists to hook me up to their equipment and detect any brain activity at all. And who gave me this de-caf?
