Inauguration Day

“This election is said to have been about rejecting the political establishment. We cannot let that mean rejecting established facts” [Rush Holt, AAAS Chief Executive Officer]. Amen! As a mathematical scientist, my calling is to continue listening and reading – to be a lifelong student of my academic discipline – and then to speak and write the truth as I see it. Although my political dissent may take the form of “speaking truth to power,” my primary obligation is to discernment; to seek truth over falsehood and speak truth to everyone.
