Reason versus power

15 January, 2007

Are those egghead “liberal” “elites”* making trouble again, or is the US slowly screwing itself into the ground? 10,000 scientists protest political interference in research, distortion of results, and political discrimination, and compile a list of (a few of) their grievances.

* I use the inverted commas (AKA bunny ears) because of the tendency of right-wing nutjobs to use these words as terms of abuse, while completely failing to understand what the word actually means (in the case of “liberal”), or the ludicrous irony of their accusation (in the case of “elite”).
