Hi Ed and all,

I would say that the Smithsonian's headline is bad, too.  It, too appears to
be claiming "bad science".  The headline would be better saying something
like, "How one bad headline echoes misinformation across the internet".  (Do
you think I have a job at the Smithsonian now?)


Thanks for sending.


Very truly yours,

"How One Bad Science Headline Can Echo Across the Internet

Recent articles claiming birth control [pills] causes "transgender" fish
show how science communication can mislead-even when it relies on facts"
