CJ: The following related articles may not be glamorous or pendantic enough for Derek Lowe to discuss on Pipeline, so I'm going to try my luck with you:http://pubs.acs.org/cen/news/89/i32/8932notw8.htmlhttp://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021%2Fnn202625cWhat's next, diamonds from dog sh!t?
I think it got a good bit of coverage from the chemblogo/Twittersphere. What are you looking for, exactly? Are you looking for condemnatory remarks on Tour's periodic triviality?

@CJ: On the contrary, I would like to know if you think it's a good example of selling research. Several of my friends from grad school have entered academia. They've told me about the difficulty in getting funded for "traditional chemistry research". Similar observations have been made by my friends in big pharma, i.e., big pharma being enamored by well-marketed ideas from small biotechs that ultimately turn out to be utter crap.Besides, you don't seem like the condemning type ;)
I liked Bruce Hornsby (I haven't heard him in a while - he came to OH about ten years ago).It's happier than "Mandolin Rain".
