    Take a bow: 'Science' crowned word of the year by Merriam-Webster

    Overpopulation: Why ingenuity alone won't save us

  • Humbletalk: It's just another way to say 'smug'

     Humbletalk: It's just another way to say 'smug'

  • Greg Schwem: An 'F' is a very 'Nobel' grade

    My daughter burst through the front door, dropped her backpack, grabbed a handful of potato chips and flopped on the couch. A typical after-school entrance. I tepidly approached. "Any homework tonight?" "Mmmmm." A typical after-school response....
  • Upset over U.S. fiscal crisis, China urges a 'de-Americanized world'

    Al Gore is now vegan, just like Bill Clinton
