The latest issue of Annals of Applied Statistics features two unusually provocative articles. Szekely and Rizzo begin with a surprising new measure of statistical dependence, which is both elementary to compute and endowed with useful data analysis properties. Several eminent discussants consider its impressive set of advantages over Pearson's correlation. Then Baggerly and Coombes dissect some influential methodology papers from the medical literature, detailing an array of serious errors. Since their paper appeared on our website, four ongoing medical trials at major universities have been suspended. Both papers are available here: http://projecteuclid.org/aoas
