  • I started to read this article Monday but got distracted by the article next to it, which dealt with a border collie who knew 200 words, hahahahaha.

  • By the way, NPR is doing a special Science Friday about this tomorrow. We’ll have some of the staff here for the Campbell Conference, too, including the director:

  • I read this three times since you posted it, and every time I read it, I’m laughing too hard to reply coherently.

  • Jesus Christ, that’s an impressive lineup. I shall be listening on NPR. Thanks for the heads-up, Chris.

  • It was a dumb comment, to be sure, but what else could I do? Its what happened. Its exactly 100 percent what happened.

    I have read it now, if that helps you curb the mocking impulse?

  • Did you hear it? We got to see it, almost by accident.

    The museum is nice, well worth visiting.

  • No no, not the mocking impulse! I was charmed by the fact that you thought it was funny that you found the border collie story much more compelling.

  • Damn, no, I had to be away from the radio, as it turned out. I wonder if they have an audio clip online? How was it?

  • It was a cute story. Plus, I know less-than-nothing of Science Fiction, though I’ll work on it right after I take care of the 50 other holes in my education. In fact, the first genre author I’ve read has been none other than your esteemed buddy and my remarkably tolerant former co-worker, Bill Shunn! Yaaay! “Vanishing Acts” was my first purchase!!

    Anyway, sorry about that, and you can make fun of me if you want to, I won’t be that hurt. I just thought it was funny that I made such a decisive move to ignore it, and here it comes again, following me!

  • Yep, at sciencefriday.com

  • No kidding! Makes me wish we had more time, more staff, more of everything!

    Too bad you won’t make it. The guest bedroom offer still stands!

  • Thanks, again, for the generous offer. Next year. Next year my life will be in order. But I’ve read some of the news coverage: you’ve really put together a great program.
