I have several large-scale projects in the works, but needed something short and sweet to whet my creative appetite. Professor Brian Cox's comments last week, after winning the President's Medal in London, provided my way in. This is but a snippet of a longer diatribe on governmental policy and journalism that ignores scientific findings, and the importance of scientific education in the preservation of democracy.
