Jewish date: 19 ’Iyyar 5770 (Parashath Behar-Beḥuqqothay).
Today’s quasi-holidays: World Press Freedom Day (UN), National Two Different Colored Shoes Day.
Worthy cause of the day: “Don't let the climate deniers drown out science”.
Today’s news and commentary:
- “Evidence based smear campaigns”: Very depressing.
- “Just Deserts”
- “The Vaccine War” and commentary on it
- “Aphids Pilfered Red Genes from Fungus”: I did not make this up. Reality is bizarre at times.
Enjoy and share the weirdness.
