Planet of the Lemurs

All this talk of a "missing link" is just plain stupid. Do the mediators really have to dumb the science down to generate hype? It undermines the credibility of science and riles up the Creationists. I guess that's the way you do it, make up some emotionally charged BS and sell it to the masses in our newfound idiocracy. Cheney seems to be using that formula. I can understand manipulation in politics, but it really bugs me when we mediatize science and sacrifice accuracy. I'm not advocating for highfalutin geek jargon. I'm saying that it is possible to communicate the complexity of nature in the plain language of mass media. From now on I'm calling it the Histrionic Channel.

So here's a soundtrack for you to ponder the parallel universe where lemurs rule the Earth and the mediasphere.
