Ah, "science" in the media, always good for a laugh

There's nothing wrong with the idea of science in the media, per se: I want more and better science in the media. But there's a lot wrong when people who clearly don't know any science write (or illustrate) pieces about science or related matters like engineering, the environment, and space exploration.

The Wall St. Journal, where people who don't understand basic Physics units write tweets about trading systems designed by hordes of Math and Physics PhDs:

With friends like Engadget "green" writers, the environment won't improve.

The Motley Fool, being its foolish self.

That's it for September. A lot of incipient posts in the hamper, but paid work got in the way of blogging. Such is life.
