I think this group will find this article in Science interesting/useful:
Hemingway, C., W. Dahl, C. Haufler, and C. Stuessy. 2011. Building

require special efforts. Some good ideas are aired here, but others
having to do with topics (long story) are not.

play in the current US antiscience/anti-intellectual atmosphere.
