I know many of us have discussed this, but I'd like to look at it from a different perspective today. From the perspective of the rejection of this science by Nature magazine.

I used to read a lot of magazines. A decade ago, maybe longer, I started to notice a pattern. No matter what the subject matter of the magazine was, the level of intellectual power was diminishing fast. A level of smugness had creeped in.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

I watched Clash of the Titans for the first time last night and it was great!

I am a decade late and the CGI showed that, but I loved it.

Morning Pham,

45deg here. Just cold enough for a fire.

Hope you all have a great day!
