So I missed the debate tonight, but approximately an Avagadro's number of people have IMed, emailed, or tweeted to me that Senator McCain, once again, made fun of the venerable and honorable Zeiss planetarium projector at Adler.
Obviously, McCain is not up on his intertoobs.
I have said all I can about McCain's ridiculous lies about this topic. I'm done being negative about this particular subject. Y'all will get a chance to be positive about it on November 4.
But why wait? Turns out, the Adler planetarium in Chicago has a page where you can donate to help them renovate the Zeiss. I suggest you do what you can; remember, despite what McCain has implied, Adler never got any money for this much needed upgrade.
Millions of kids go through that theater, and they learn about the wonder of the sky, the fun of science, and the sheer joy of understanding. Some people don't get that.
But a lot of people do. And you know what? I think we'll prevail.
Tip o' the dew shield to Meg Kribble for pointing me to the Adler page.
