A friend of mine send me a link this weekend to this Washington Post story about some scientists who contrived to sneak as many Bob Dylan lyrics as they could into papers they wrote for serious journals. If I were a scientist, no doubt I'd do the same. The sad part is that I can't think of an appropriate Dylan quote to use right now.
(Maybe it's because I'm burned out from exhaustion, buried in the hail, poisoned in the bushes and blown out on the trail...)
THIS IS SAD. It's about how schools in the coalfields are coping with declining enrollment as families move in search of work.
SO IS THIS. Scientists are trying to think of modern day Noah's arks to save species threatened by climate change.
