    Pseudoscience and politics- what a dangerous combination, one can kill you and the other can make sure they have license to do so

  2. Normally my state does so well but we do have our share of unethical people. Thankfully the bill failed and now she’s being called on it.

    On the plus side the gay marriage bill here in Maine has 60 co-sponsors, that’s 1/3 of the entire legislature that don’t just approve of gay marriage but actually want their name on the bill before it even goes up for a vote. It’s a promising sign.

  3. A friend e-mailed the Jasmine story to my the other day. I love it! But, the elephant video was even better. It made me squeal, and I’m not prone to squealing. Baby elephants gots nothin on kittens, I tells ya.

    And the BBC sibling article does not surprise me. No wonder I needed years of therapy! Thanks, older brother!
