Quote of the day
"Why do news media so often leap on science stories that fall apart on deeper examination? I believe it is because many reporters and editors have a curiously naive conception of what science is (...) Many journalists appear not to understand that there is a crucial difference between the science in textbooks and what actual working scientists do for a living."
