Gleanings (3)

Global Warming: The big one hit 14,600 years ago.
Appendicitis dogma overturned: Surgery usually optional.
Churchhill on Islam.  "The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as a child, a wife, or a concubine—must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men."   (There's more like this, written in 1899.)
