Here's a New York Times article about the new popularity of forensic science, thanks to shows like CSI. I didn't realize just how popular forensics were until I was watching Elimidate yesterday (well, not really watching, more like briefly pausing as I was flipping through the channels). One of the four trashy girls was talking about how she was going to school for forensic dentistry, "so her patients would never bite her or complain." She then described how her work would be useful in identifying victim remains after a mass disaster, creeping the hell out of her competition. And then my finger hit the channel change button, but I have a feeling she was probably the first one to be let go.
