The pause that refreshes

I realize it's mostly pointless to argue about "climate change," because it truly has become like a religion; you either believe in it or you do not, and logic and facts are not of much use when it comes to matters of faith. But, what the hell, an editorial writer frequently finds himself in "beating a dead horse" territory, so here are things "the mainstream media won't tell you about global warming," including the most obvious one:

Tag, you're it, comet

Man, this is just flat-out amazing:

Mankind has just cleared another hurdle in space exploration: landing the first spacecraft on a comet.

God and evolution

I'm not well versed in Catholic theology, so I don't know how big a deal this is. And the press has a long history of hopelessly mangling what popes say, so I'm not even sure he really even believes this. But I do find it interesting:

CDC Director Thomas Frieden has "expressed regret" (love those weasel words) that he kept saying "Hey, we can handle this Ebola thing" when we clearly weren't ready for it:

You say you want an evolution

Heh. OK, so I may not be smarter than you, but maybe I'm more evolved:

Eat at will!

We don't even have to talk about global warming climate change to discredit that "the science is settled" nonsense. Been reading about new "insights" into food lately?

A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine adds to the body of evidence that cutting back on carbs, not fat, can lead to more weight loss.

Who's in charge?
