Just a real life example of the anti-science, neo-Dark Ages approach to life that is so prevalent among both the right & left (e.g. the whole Occupy movement's ignorance about how capitalism works).
People will tunnel-view the particular facts that favor their bias. I'll leave it at that.

That said, I wasn't complaining on Friday as I walked the dogs in shorts and t-shirt. If I were in WI, I would be one crabby SOB. What a useless winter. Hopefully 2012-2013's winter will be more 'normal', whatever that is. I have considered getting some of these roller skis to satisfy my need to crash.
