Skeptics' Circle update: posts wanted!

Orac at Respectful Insolence is hosting the next Skeptics' Circle:
It's hard to believe, but the second edition of The Skeptics' Circle is a mere six days away. It will appear on Thursday, February 17. St. Nate got the ball rolling last week with a fine collection of skeptical blogging. He set the bar high. With your help, I hope to continue the tradition.

...I'd like to have at least a dozen good skeptical posts to showcase. My thoughts on the sorts of posts I'd love to see are here, and St. Nate's original guidelines are here. So, this weekend, if you're a blogger and you've written something skeptical or demonstrating critical thinking skills about urban legends, the paranormal, quackery, creationism/intelligent design, psychic phenomena, or other topics worthy of applying Occam's razor and a skeptical eye to, please send it in. Send the URL/permalink to orac_usa at hotmail-dot-com. The deadline will be 9 PM EST on Wednesday, February 16. Late submissions will be considered at my discretion if I haven't finished putting the Circle together at the time they are received.
My favorite comment about the Circle: "Ah, but how do we know it's a circle?" (from Doing Things With Words.)
