Devorah Bennu is the pseudonym for the pseudonymous blogger kown as Grrrrrrrl Scientist, of Living the Scientific Life. In the ongoing contest to send a blogger to Antarctica, she has sat in third place, just a few dozen votes behind Don Osmond (who is, indeed, related to the original Mormon Singer, Donny Osmond) for several weeks now.
Now, I have to tell you, I have a lot of friends and colleagues who are in this contest, and I’d love to root for ALL of them, but Devora is the only one with a chance of taking out the two people who are ahead of her, and she very much deserves to go to Antarctica. And I don’t mean that in a bad way.
Can we please cough up a couple of hundred votes for her now, to push past Don, and then, maybe you should visit this blog post at Pharyngula and remind people there (by leaving a comment) that the Pharyngulistas have a job to do!?!?
Thank you very much.
