I do like what Francis wrote, but I want to really drive it home to my people - which is to say, science fiction geeks. Let me strip this down for you. There was a quote that Jerry Pournelle likes to repeat, from one of the anti-nuclear power people: "The only physics I ever took was Ex-Lax." Remember that one? Remember how it made you laugh at the idiot?
Well, did you vote for Obama? - because if you did, you voted for the guy who takes people like that idiot seriously.
And, do you know something? I told you so.
