Deutsch testified before Congress

Remember poor George Deutsch, the NASA PR guy who tried to, what was it again? Oh yes, suppress climate scientist Jim Hansen? And what was the other thing he did…? Oh yeah, he tried to make sure the word “theory” was put after every mention of Big Bang on a NASA site, specifically because of his religious leanings.

Yeah, that George Deutsch.

Well, he testified in front of Congress today. I would give a million bazillion dollars to have been there for that, but unfortunately my real life intervenes. Maybe I’ll catch it on a CSPAN rerun, or it’ll show up on YouTube sometime.

This oughta be very interesting.
