On the flip side of the space race

"Enough about Mars. Must get back to making Earth hotter, cutting science budgets, and killing each other over religious differences."Neil deGrasse Tyson, on his Facebook page (link), August 8, 2012, 11:26 p.m.
I've admired Dr. Tyson for years. Sure, he's an incredibly accomplished scientist, a leader in his field and a widely published writer and educator. What makes him a voice of our time, however, is his ability to relate pretty much any concept to the average person. His greatest gift is the way he communicates - which kinda resonates deeply with me, as well.

Even if you're not into science-ish stuff, he's one to watch.

He's a great guy and an even better communicator. I love that quote of his.

He is right; no doubt about that!

Did you hear Rush Limbaugh saying that Obama is using the hurricane to draw attention away from the Republican convention???
