Fighting to Save Science

I suppose someone has to do it.  After all, imagine what things would be like if a selfish conservative just changed the laws of science and the thermal output of the Sun suddenly increased by an order of magnitude.  It would be a real scorcher.

Being from the San Francisco area, I am now wondering what should be our next object of protest.  Any suggestions?

Real People, Not Actors

Just saw the slogan, "Real People, Not Actors" on a commercial, from which we can clearly deduce that all humans are either Real People or Actors, but not both.  So are you a Real Person?  Or an Actor?  And what are your distinctive characteristics which put you in one category or the other?  This is to help me figure out which category I should put myself in.

Time to Retire April Fools

Part of the reason is that April Fools has long been running all year round.  My suggestion is that we formally invert the process, so that April 1st becomes the one day of the year when the news will be serious and not written by fools.  Something similar could happen in the other institutions.
