Bumper stickers of the week:
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his job depends on not understanding it.” Upton Sinclair
“In the sack, save the leatherback; Don’t go bare, panthers are rare; Wrap with care, save the polar bear; When you’re feeling tender, think about the hellbender; Be a savvy lover, protect the snowy plover; Safe intercourse saves the dwarf seahorse. Extinction is forever, wear a condom.” Center for Biological Diversity.
