• Bar "Junk Science"? Are you kidding? Who makes the decision "what is junk"?
    Politicians, not scientists! Stalin imprisoned scientists who published articles he deemed unacceptable to the Communist cause.
    If science was left up to the politicians, we'd still have a flat earth!!!
    There are very specific rules for scientific publications. Publication in a "Peer Reviewed Journal" encompasses those rules. Unfortunately, the people reviewing the articles are human, not robots. The result is some information is flawed, information that can only become more distorted when politicians get involved. Global warming is a prime example.
    Another great example is my own field of dentistry. When "look back" studies review "peer reviewed articles", less than 25% can muster an acceptable score as accurate or unbiased. A prime example can be found in The November issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association. The ADA endorsed and published an obviously flawed, biased, unscientific, politically motivated, and intentionally inaccurate article in support of "Sealants".
    Science advances in increments. Studies are published, and the results pass or fail with the passage of time.
    Keep the politicians out of the Scientific Method or there will be no science, just politicians adding to the confusion.

  • This is directly related to the credibility of the investigation of law enforcement in the Sally Blackwell case. The first blunder was the "bloodhound followed the scent to the home of an ex-Sheriff's deputy". For some reason, that was nullified. Now, the "scent test" centered around a document that Buchanek had signed will open the door to an obvious attempt to frame him. We need to bring law and order to Victoria County/City.

  • I told you so! Fort Bend County Deputy Keith Pikett has been exposed for the fraud that he is. Pikett sought to be a hero within his police brotherhood. How many other Pikett's are there out there? The answer is, there are many more Pikett's in law enforcement. Pray that you don't cross paths with them.
