Is that your dad or something?

I am saving it to read after I go to the store for ORANGES.

Also, his point about spending in the sciences is unfortunately so on target.  And very frustrating since those in the GOP that seem to eschew anything regarding really for real science as it is.  They've reduced scientists to pedantic Ivory Tower dwellers, rather than the harbingers of economic doom they actually are.  When we have to IMPORT the number of scientists and engineers and mathematicians we do to fulfill our sectors' needs, never mind giving up on R&D in our own rights...it's not a pretty picture.

But, the right-wingers don't give a shit.  Because Jebus died on a cross.

I figured. The name looked familiar to me, aside from obviously having the same last name as you.

"former science adviser to George W. Bush"

Would've loved to be a fly on the wall for those conversations.

Should be no surprise that they rarely talked.
