    Not to in any way minimize the inspiring and grueling battle against racism in this country.  But if the planet goes, we all go.

      I was a little concerned people would take it the wrong way.  I meant to suggest that just as racism is a deeply rooted and pervasive mindset that requires a long term and all out strategy to combat, anti-intellectualism is a deeply rooted and pervasive mindset (look at all the negative stereotypes of smart people in our movies, etc.) that requires an all out strategy to combat.  It isn't just a matter of getting GOPers to acknowledge scientific reality, it's about promoting the life of the mind and Western civilization and the enlightenment and the respect and regard for learning.  Doing this would solve a lot of problems for our nation and humanity.

      Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.
