One last thing on science and the public

Since this has rather turned into science communication, allow me to present a little counter-point to yesterday’s essay by Neil Gostling. Namely this effort from the frankly often extreme and much derided UK daily, the Daily Mail. Read it if you dare / can and worry that, while this might be reactionary nonsense over the current uproar in the UK over the sacking of David Nutt, it was still written and one would assume actively liked by a serious number of readers of a National newspaper.

    Weird thing about the Daily Mail: while its science journalism is appalling, its wildlife photography is stellar.
