There are numerous items — seemingly disparate but all tied together by common themes — worth noting from the last couple of days; they are all individually linkable with links at the bottom of the post:
(1) The New York Times’ Scott Shane reports today that Dr. Henry Heine, a former U.S. Army microbiologist, testified Thursday before a panel of the National Academy of Sciences examining the FBI’s scientific claims in the anthrax case, and said “it was impossible that the deadly spores had been produced undetected in Dr. [Bruce] Ivins’s laboratory”; that “[a]t the Army’s biodefense laboratory in Maryland, . . . among the senior scientists, no one believes it’;” and when “[a]sked by reporters after his testimony whether he believed that there was any chance that Dr. Ivins, who committed suicide in 2008, had carried out the attacks, [he] replied, ‘Absolutely not’.” Ivins’ hometown newspaper, the Frederick News Post, has long provided excellent and skeptical coverage of the FBI’s case, and provides more details about Heine’s testimony.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
