    Wonderful, fact-packed diary, top-notch work.

    I do wish facts were more useful in arguments with RW and Libertarian-inclined believers.

    Sadly, their response to all this is unlikely to rise above the knee-jerk:

    "Glenn said it, I believe it, and that settles it."

    But I appreciate the diary, I do . . .

      Yes, the wingers are nothing if not impervious to facts.  If we could harness that somehow, we could build a force field so powerful Earth would never have to worry about asteroids again...
