A few words that say a WHOLE lot

My favorite magazine is Reader's Digest.

Show of hands: How many people does this really surprise?

I love reading all the stories and articles and jokes. There's lots of information about neat new gadgets and scientific advancements.

In the June 2008 issue, there's a little story about a scientific study with this quote.

"As a general rule, science that bolsters sexist cliches should be shunned" (p. 82)

So if science proves something that you don't personally agree with, then you stick your fingers in your ears, squeeze your eyes closed, and sing "LALALALA!!" at the top of your lungs.

Because that's the only mature way to react. Scientifically speaking. It is a sad, sad commentary on our culture.

I love Reader's Digest, but for different reasons - quick and interesting reads. Science stuff - not so much! Is this what you were reading at dance??
