My Hebrew is absolutely rudimentary, but here's my best shot: First two lines: From (at?) the house of our fathers (beit avot)... the house second lines: something from the blood (min hadam) ... mezuzah (next to? in place of? as a sign of?) I'm sure someone can do a better job here.

After two separate Dean's Date-induced all-nighters (also at Princeton) ended in seizures, I swore off all-nighters and have been pretty good about sticking to that. But I guess I have a stronger incentive than most.

Gary - I hate to say this, but have you tried keeping a word (or pick your word processing program of choice) document with a backup copy of all your comments? Copying and pasting before hitting "Post" might allow you to save some of the deep hot flame for issues that more merit your passion and attention. Just sayin ;)

I'm under the impression that another reason new antibiotics aren't being developed very fast is that /we've hit all the easy targets already/. Simply the R&D is much harder than it used to be. If a building cements over its windows, building a better ladder to climb in through them simply doesn't do any good. Which makes it all the more critical that we use the antibiotics we have responsibly, lest ALL bacteria block up their windows.

Hilzoy, thank you for everything you've taught us and shown us. You were the first blogger I started reading and are still the primary one, and I sing your praises (almost literally) whenever people ask for blog recommendations. I can't tell you the number of conversations I've had that have started with "Did you see what hilzoy said yesterday...?" I use your writing as an example to myself of how important thorough, careful research is, and of how to do such research well. We'll all miss you.
