Trade Offs

We have a dog named Roxy. She’s a yellow lab and loves to eat. We feed her twice a day, and at both meals, she acts like she hasn’t eaten for a week, and devours her food. She is almost nine years old. I have recently started feeling bad that she seems hungry all the…

The Case AGAINST Science

If there is one line that this pandemic has beaten to death, it is “follow the science.” This has confused more people than it has helped, because no matter what it is you are discussing or debating, there is some science to support your position.
