    I was hoping to see a follow-up today on the P T Barnum crate. Any chance of that?

          If he’s in that box, it needs to be mailed to Antarctica….

    Ugh! I’m already getting emails from my conservative/religious friends!

    Is it me, or are both ends of the political spectrum more prone to believing hogwash?

    Then again, maybe that’s the problem? Everyone sees the foolishness of others, but not themselves.

    Happy Skeptics Holiday! It’s the one day of the year where we can almost take a break, that one day of the year when even the most ardent True Believer actually expends skeptical energy on what they see on the Internet. If only we could get them to behave the same way for the other 364 days of the year…

      On April 1 I don’t bother to read the news. Except for the weather. And then I check outside anyway. The rest of the year, I don’t always check outside before I go. As to the rest of the news, Doubtfulnews and her crew are my go-to source to fact check the crazies.

    Having April fools’ day off seems like a very sensible thing to do. You probably go mad if you didn’t!
