  • A wonderful example of doing good to all – let’s hope it works in all senses… Christopher Hitchens and Francis Collins.
  • And while we’re thinking about him, here’s a nice if brief interview with Francis Collins – quite old now (originally from 2007), but I’ve only just seen it.

Quirky Treasure

  • Thanks to a comment on an old Q post, I’ve recently got into this fantastic resource – the Google Art Project. It’s a real treasure trove.
