Morning roundup

  • We have a verdict in the Janet Moses case. If you recall, her family drowned her because they mistook mental illness for demonic possession and thought the makutu ceremony, with attendant risks of drowning, just the thing. Well, the courts seem to have agreed with the family. The jury said guilty of manslaughter; the judge said no jail. For the record: if ever someone thinks I'm possessed by demons, I have not consented to any application of any exorcism (consent of the victim can matter).

  • Some sciency goodness from our friends at New Zealand Ag Research: The Epigenome Song!
