Most of us, I’m sure, support some organization or other, and perhaps more than one. In my own case, I support two: AU, and the National Center for Science Education (www.ncseweb.org)
Last Thursday, my wife and I flew to San Francisco to attend her son’s wedding. We stayed in a hotel right next to the CAL campus in Berkeley, and I had a bit of free time. I took a cab over to the NCSE facility in Oakland, and was given a tour of the facility by the Deputy Director, Glenn Branch. Many of the staff were there, including the Executive Director, Eugenie Scott, who graciously gave me a few minutes of her valuable time.
This post is a blatant attempt to suggest to any of you who are not aware of NCSE, or who may doubt that they are worthy of your support, that they are not only worthy of support, but very deserving, as well. These few folks, with not very much of a budget, are fighting rather unpopular battles for my grandchildren’s education. If you have not been to their site, you might consider giving them a look. Thank you!
It was also very interesting for an old conservative like me to hike all over the Berkeley campus. Lovely place!
