Mary Brock is a scientist who works on drugs you've hopefully never heard of. She enjoys cooking to Blue Grass music, messing with her cats, and hosting the Boston Skeptics' Book Club. She was born in the South but loves living in New England (despite the lack of chocolate chip pizza). Mary does not use Twitter and don't even try to follow her, because she is always looking over her shoulder.

    Jeez. There are STILL idiots who try to ostrich away violence and threats with empty babble about ‘big tents’ and on-the-other-handery.

    SXSW’s cringing in the face of threats was actually couched in these terms (quote pulled from Butterflies and Wheels):
    “SXSW feels that both the organization and its staff have been under siege from all sides and from all parties since they announced the panels,”

    Show us the numbers assholes.
