What Your Average American Can Learn From Journalists

celesteheadlee.tumblr.com — There's a lot of disagreement on political issues these days and that's to be expected. We're politically polarized for a number of reasons. That means all kinds of issues that shouldn't be political are now fractured down ideological lines. While that's worrisome, it doesn't surprise me or concern me the way that the polarization of science does.
