The Seed editorial staff want to know how we’re voting in the upcoming election. I try to avoid politics on this blog — not because I don’t have an opinion, but because I’d rather write about science. Here’s what they want to know:
What’s the most important local political race to you this year (as a citizen, as a scientist)?
As much as I would love to wax eloquently on issues of local politics, I’ve got a statewide race on my mind.
You see, Rick “Man on Dog1” Santorum is one of my US Senators. Zuska is also suffering from this same condition. Hopefully, come Tuesday, the Dog Fucker won’t be representing us in the US Senate.

Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Why?

In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.
