Yes, as 2011 comes to a close, like other bloggers I look back on what has transpired this year. So, what's a blog like the Asylum if not to have a little fun, eh? And so I'm announcing today that some time in December I'll be announcing the awarding of my first annual Un-Sanies. I'm not really sure yet if I'll choose a top 5,10,whatever format or have categories (e.g. most Un-Sane book, blog post, quotation, etc.). I.'m not even sure I've settled on the Un-Sanies (In-Sanies were another option). But I'd like to identify some of the most outrageous statements -- in print or otherwise on the net -- made in the promotion of or defense of radical carbohydrate restriction. Off the top of my head Wheat Belly's battery acid, Eades' just totally "eew creepy" reference to moisture and young ladies, and more recently the reference of Joel Osteen impersonator Ron Rosedale to all of us as some degree of diabetic are worthy of consideration. And yeah! I didn't even tap the wealth of material from Taubes yet. Oh ... and yes ... who can forget at AHS. Perhaps I need to award some Sanies too?!
So ... if you have anything in mind you think I should consider or may have missed or forgotten, chime in here with your comments. If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, shoot me an email with suggestions through my profile.
I'm hoping we can have some good old Sane-Asylum fun with this here!
