We are delighted to announce that Bob Goodman, the founder of No Free Lunch, has decided that NFL will merge with Healthy Skepticism.

We have surveyed NFL supporters regarding the merger. We extend a special welcome to NFL supporters who responded to the survey and have been added to our Healthy Skepticism free subscribers list to receive HS Updates about once a month. They will receive more information about Healthy Skepticism soon. We will publish results of the survey then begin upgrading and updating the NFL website.
