King: Too many still deny reality of science

No joke. There really is a Flat Earth Society. Conspiracy theorists are everywhere these days, but I really did think the idea of a flat earth died out years ago, especially after our astronauts took those beautiful photos of our planet from their space capsules.

Robbins: An open letter to an old jacket thief

This, as stated above, is an open letter to the person who stole my jacket.

King: Politics keeps us short-sighted

Human nature has changed little over time, but human behavior has. We no longer burn heretics at the stake or torture animals for sport ... well, not the way we did in the past. At least today we pay lip service to social justice and the rule of law.
