Hey, Rush! Only On Fox News!

And speaking of science ... courtesy of The Placebo Journal (link at left), I was alerted to a story that ran on Fox News recently as - you guessed it - serious journalism: Staring At Breasts Is Good For Your Health.  I'll admit it's something I've speculated about periodically (on a purely scientific basis, of course), because every little bit of workout a man's heart muscle gets should be good conditioning for it, right?  Well, (sadly) not in this case.  A little research showed the study behind the Fox scoop to be bogus, which just goes to show the journalistic rigour with which they don't research their breaking news.  But I'm sure Glenn Beck ...no, let's not go there.
