I’d love to say that I have tons of time to write and maintain this blog right now, but it’s far from the truth. So, much to my personal chagrin, I’ve put Steady State Revolution on Hiatus for the time being. I’ll be back once things calm down a bit in my personal and professional lives. […]

Q: Why was it called global warming for so long, if the weather everywhere isn’t actually warming? Why aren’t they using that term as much anymore?

Occasionally I have to fly for my day job. I’m not a huge fan of it – I can handle the actual act of flying, but I hate the whole experience, from the pre-boarding body search to the crammed-in-a-seat-built-for-someone-two-feet-shorter-than-me.

The House of Representatives recently voted to eliminate public broadcasting. This means no more NPR, no more Sesame Street (won’t somebody think of the children?!), no more Wait! Wait! Don’t Tell Me, no more PBS Kids. As a parent with a child who loves Elmo, as well as a frequent listener of npr’s great programs, […]
