Short comments

--Why are the "Supplemental Data" sections of papers often bigger than the main data sections themselves? And now there are even "Supplemental Discussions" to go along with the "Supplemental Methods" and "Supplemental Data." Somebody please make this stop.

--It's gray and cold. I have the kids bundled in winter-coat mode already. Happily, we are leaving for vacation to Florida tomorrow =)

--Bean-girl still cries when I take her to kindergarten.

--Hopefully, I'll have more interesting things to write when I get back.

Supplemental Discussion?! Yeah, that's totally unnecessary.

Enjoy your vacation! I'm looking forward to mine, too... less than 4 weeks to go now!

Back from vacation... Incredibly enough, the Supplemental Discussion (from a Cell paper) *was* actually necessary. They should just break up some of these damn papers into two separate papers!
