The house Anti-Science Committee strikes again!
 
NEWS ITEM: "By a party-line vote, Republicans in the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology approved a budget authorization for NASA that would ... slash the agency's budget for Earth sciences." There's certainly no need to study the only planet that enables humanity to survive, right? Details: http://bit.ly/1bSMZSW

Apparently McCarthy is alive and well and working for NASA.
 
New in my blog: I'm a bit steamed at my former employer.

Involved citizens!

There might some hope for this country after all.
Sometimes citizens can be so frustrated with county board members they wish someone could just place them under arrest. Well, that is exactly what citizens in Clark County, Illinois did .

Reading is dangerous.  You might learn something.
An eight-year-old girl in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., was told she’s not allowed to read a book on the school bus because it poses a risk to the safety of other students.

Here's what I would do, if I were dad.  I'd buy the girl a Kindle (they have nice, rounded corners), and load it up with books she wanted to read. Then I'd go with her to the bus stop, tell the bus driver what I'd done, and explain that if he had any problem with it, I would sue him, his company, and the school board for interfering with his daughter's rights.  

Safety risk, my eyeball.  As if kids needed an excuse to get up and act out on school buses!

(I didn't follow the link.... does it continue with, "and I will take five thousand steps?")

OK... about an hour later the link opened and I see it.  Kicking myself because that really is obvious!

I thought this was public, but it was really in my notes.
