07 Aug 2006 A Letter
Dear Mrs. Ridenour:
Congratulations on your belated discovery of Science.
I hope you start reading it aloud to your children, and husband as well, along with its British counterpart, Nature, as getting a handle on both will enable you to profitaby return to this and other subjets that have eluded coherent analysis by the center.
Godspeed in getting started. The vexing thing about our nation is the deplorable absence of politicized science – it cannot fairly be said to exist until both sides have some inkling of what it is they are trying to politicize.
