Green dudes over at Inhabitots cover the next chapter in the cell phone/cancer debate, with a mention of a new book out, awkwardly and lengthily-titled “Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family.” In DTTACPRWTIHDTHIAHTPYF (yeah, like I was going to type that title again), Dr. Devra Davis talks about – you guessed it – cell phone radiation and evidently the reasons why when we report on cool apps for your child, we’re knowingly and maliciously giving your kid cancer.

Remember when we were kids, and our parents only had wackos and molesters to worry about while they checked our Halloween candy?

I’m not the biggest television viewer (weight jokes aside), but I’ve been noticing a trend for years about the representation of television fathers. And guys, it’s not good.

Most notably the bad ones, since that’s what stood out to me, even when I was a child.
