The Oxford Dictionaries named “post-truth” their word of the year for 2016. Ad agencies are talking about campaigns for a “post-fact economy.” And, yes, “alternative facts” have somehow become a thing. If truth is stranger than fiction, post-truth is stranger yet.

Today, I signed up for the March for Science, after they finally picked a date – April 22 – which un-coincidentally happens to be Earth Day.  I may even head to Washington for this one.

For the record, I don’t believe that “reality has a well-known liberal bias,” as Stephen Colbert joked at the White House Correspondents dinner. Liberals have their own blind spots, for example, around GMOs.
