Michael Specter's TED talk: The danger of science denial

I love the TED talks, and this might be one of my favorites so far.  Michael Specter gives a magnificant talk about science denialism, or perhaps more accurately, the current anti-science mentality in our society. 

California Teacher Cuts

Thousands of teachers in California have been laid off this year.  I've been discussing this with people and thinking about, but put off writing about it because it seemed so overwhelmingly bad.  It still seems overwhelmingly bad, and I still don't want to put myself through writing about it.  Luckily, thanks to Megan Fox, I don't have to.  Enjoy.
