Used to see this pure white pigeon down the street. Haven’t seen it around for a while. All these should be removed before it snows. Move them away from the streets and sidewalks. In the summer, they are decorative. In the winter, they are in the way. Nothing more depressing than pushing one of these […]

“the use of science in guiding human affairs is always a political act” – Daniel Sarewitz We are constantly being told to trust the science. Science cannot be wrong. Can’t argue with science. Vaccines and climate change are two recent examples. How can you argue against science? Its definitive. Can’t be challenged. The problem is that […]
