Khalil A. Cassimally:

Your anger and that of the people of Boston is completely justifiable. But this is also perhaps a good opportunity to realise that there are millions of people who leave with the same fear and subsequent anger elsewhere on Earth. Too many times we choose not to see such suffering. I hope the Boston tragedy opens our eyes to what happens elsewhere as well. I wrote a short piece expanding upon this a little bit here.

Kerstin Hoppenhaus: Granular reporting

Paige Brown: Internet Control vs. Freedom

Alex Brown: Why do kidneys need cells?


I was surprised the point about 'theory' and 'fact' didn't come up. People often have their own definitions of these words; they might have a theory that Dave's always a bit annoying because he doesn't get enough sleep. But it's not a theory in the scientific sense of the word, and a lot of people don't know what a scientific theory is, which leads them to saying stuff like "evolution is just a theory".
