BLIZZARDS in Boston are versatile. The one in 1978 proved global cooling.
The one this weekend proved global warming.
I wonder what the next Boston Blizzard will prove.
The most stunning reaction to the blizzard came from CNN anchor Deb Feyerick, who on Saturday afternoon had Bill Nye (the science guy) on to explain how global warming caused the snowfall of up to 40 inches in Hamden, Conn.
But besides the snowfall, she asked him about the upcoming close call with an asteroid scheduled in two days.
"Talk about something else that's falling from the sky and that is an asteroid," she said.
"What's coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming or is this just some meteoric occasion?"
Last spring, a Yale professor said global warming helps spread AIDS.
It's science. If you ask any questions, you're anti-science.
The Southern Poverty Law Center bills itself as "a non-profit organization that combats hate, intolerance and discrimination through education and litigation."
But the center may inadvertently have prompted a shooting spree last summer at the Family Research Council in Washington.
Floyd Corkins, 28, cited a hate map on the center's Web site as a reason he targeted the council.
