Climate 101

Although polls show that climate change is far down the list of concerns for most people, a few diehards persist in bringing it up the same way flat-earthers kept telling Chris Columbus he’d fall off the edge when he said the world was round.  Magellan had proven that fact some years before but, evidently, the […]

A Toxic Fairy Tale

One day Chicken Little was walking through the woods when, suddenly, an acorn fell on her head.  It scared her so much she trembled all over, shaking so hard, half her feathers fell out.  “Help!  Help!  The sky is falling!  The sky is falling!  I have to go tell the king!” she cried.  So, terrified, […]

Ming Dienasty

For 507 years, he was happy as a clam.  In fact, he was a clam … a bivalve mollusk, an ocean quahog to be specific.  Ming was the oldest living creature ever reported, that is, until some egghead who doesn’t even know which side of the road to drive on, pried open his shell to […]

Political Science

When I was in college there was a course of study called “Political Science”.  Since I had no particular interest in either entity back then, I didn’t take any classes in the subject … but I was told it was actually the science of politics, as opposed to the politics of science, as the name […]
