Contrary Brin

What a beautiful morning!

I believe the Bush administration is about to receive one of my most rigorous blessings: "May you receive a clear view of your own faults" -- and not a moment too soon.

The moral is: Embrace CITOKATE* before CITOKATE gets imposed on you.

I believe in science. That means that testing one's ideas against reality is necessary to progress. To cut off error detection by avoiding criticism is to start on a path to perdition even more direct than the one lined by good intentions.

*CITOKATE stands for: Criticism Is The Only Antidote To Error, as developed in the blog of David Brin, at Contrary Brin

I seem to have drifted to Wednesday morning. The next entry is also new since last Wednesday.
