An excellent article we should all read.

And I particularly liked this quote in there:
Alternative facts donít exist in science
Alternative hypotheses are not alternative facts!
"Do not confuse complexity with superiority"

No science?

No antibiotics
No survivable surgeries.

I've thought of a slogan, though it probably doesn't belong in the March of Science.

MAKE AMERICA GOOD AGAIN

I feel that by allying ourselves with murderers of democracy such as Putin, by standing by while such as Assad slaughter their people, by continuing to support the Saudis and illegal Israeli settlements-- we are headed down the road of evil.

[apologies for going off-topic... if anyone would like to discuss, we can start a new thread.]

How about something like "Public Health Makes America Safe" or "Public Health [insert safety language pulled from homeland security rhetoric here]"
I spend time I can't get back reading unverifiable stories online about problems I don't have.

I'm leaning toward something like:

Alternative Facts are LIES!

(Read a book!)
Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand

"Conservation means development as much as it does protection. I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use the natural resources of our land; but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or to rob, by wasteful use, the generations that come after us."  Teddy Roosevelt

How about "Science - Fact Check It!"
