The science march was wet, but the attendees were fired up. The messaging was inspiring. Today’s science discoveries arise from experiments built upon universally accepted principles that have been thoroughly tested over the centuries and are now accepted science facts. For a new discovery to become a “fact” it is vetted and tested again and again by both colleagues and competitors. This scientific process yields highly reliable results that the American public can put their faith in. This has led to the incredible standard of living, safety and good health we enjoy today. I hope our politicians get the message and maintain or increase the budget for our great science institutions.
