Introduction
I believe that G+'s rules about pseudonymity and anonymity were wrong-headed, potentially dangerous, culturally deaf, useless, and basically stupid.

"There is an equivalent level of scientific consensus on both issues, I realized, that climate change is real and genetically modified foods are safe. I could not defend the expert consensus on one issue while opposing it on the other."
 
"On genetic engineering, environmentalists have been markedly more successful than climate change deniers or anti-vaccination campaigners in undermining public understanding of science. The scientific community is losing this battle."

Oh sure, +Alex Aminoff, we shouldn't just trust that all gmos are everything they claim, but we shouldn't ignore them just because they're gmos, either, which is what most of the dialog I hear says.

Guess what? You're probably putting your kids at an even BIGGER risk if you don't vaccinate against measles...

http://www.npr.org/blogs/goatsandsoda/2015/05/07/404963436/scientists-crack-a-50-year-old-mystery-about-the-measles-vaccine
When the U.S. introduced the measles vaccine, childhood deaths from all infections plummeted. Scientists think they might know why: Benefits of the measles vaccine go way beyond the measles.

It's a lovely quilt, though a bit sun-faded at this point...
+Lisa Bowes made it for us as a wedding present many years ago.

In between Chris Lydon and Tom Ashbrook, wbur had a heap of hosts in the 10-noon slot. One - a British woman - was there longer than the rest.

Who was that??

I think I was out of the country during the interregnum.

I will throw out, unsolicited, that my favorite On Point guest host is Jacki Lydon, and my least, by a wide margin, is Jane Clayson.
