March for Science!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of marching in downtown St. Paul, MN for the March for Science. The march for science is protesting the neglected scientific research for global warming exhibited in the Trump presidency.

  2. The joy that is Trump. I have a great deal of sympathy for folks living in a country run by him. Aside from anything else, he collaborated with the Decepticons in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. That all being said, I believe my government recruits its ministers from the Jim Henson workshop on a regular basis…
