New Scientist: This is no way to save the whales
For a graphic example of science being abused for political and sentimental ends look no further than the debate over whaling.
I'm not going to comment on the above article (the bulk of which is locked away behind a New Scientist, subscriber-only paywall), but cop a load of the author's name: James (I kid you not) Hrynyshyn!
Do you see what he's done? He's taken his real surname (which is presumably some foreign equivalent of Harrison) and replaced all the vowels with the letter y. That is so totally cool.
Rychyrd Cyrtyr, just imagine that! Don't you just love the (for want of a better word) Welshness of it?
Or is it just a tad too Lynyrd Skynyrd?
