I have to respond to a letter in the Los Alamos Daily Post (link) suggesting that we are sleeping through the current challenges to science in our country. I think rather that it is a matter of preaching to the choir.
In a town that exists for the pursuit of science, it seems silly to shout that we believe it. Therefore, three generations of my family will be going to Santa Fe Saturday to remind our state government that we believe in science, and that they should, too. My friends and neighbors already know that.
