    I’ll be at the March for Science in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. It’s being called a “satellite” march, so I’m guessing it will be quite small. Still, there are two reputable universities in town, so you never know…

    Unfortunately I am not attending a march. The nearest one I am aware of is 175km away and I am helping supervise two exams at the local university.

    Classes are done for the spring term at university and my academic friends are starting to look more cheerful.

    10 am, Indiana Statehouse.

    So far as I can tell, this _may_ be a disaster. I keep getting emails to register and volunteer, but no acknowledgement that I have already done so.

    No mention on local TV news – and I’ve emailed each station only to get an automated response.

    I plan to go to the New York City march. Assuming, that is, that the NJ Transit train systems have been un-hosed from their current state of dumpster fire worthlessness, in ample evidence this morning. And Amtrak, which uses the same rails, isn’t winning any awards either. (Seriously just google this — ugh!) We need science to give us better transit (assuming our government — from Trump to Chris Christie, who canceled projects to expand the rail tunnels under the Hudson –doesn’t kill it first!)

    Working. Sorry.

    I have, however, for the first time in 27 years of federal service, received an email stating that there are certain words that I am not allowed to use in any way, shape or form during conversations with the public. Including cl*m*t* ch*ng*, gl*b*l w*rm*ng, etc.

    Wow, not only do I actually have tomorrow off (unusual for me), there’s also a march in my city.

    @Ogvorbis #5:

    Conversations, eh? If a member of the public asks you a question about any of those subjects, are you allowed to silently hand them a printout of the email?

    Rich Woods:

    There was no guidance provided regarding how to respond to a direct question. I’m a coward and I am a little over 5 years from retirement so I would simply respond to a visitor that that is a subject I cannot discuss while in uniform or on government time.

    I wish I could participate in one of the many marches.

    And I think part of the problem is there are too many cowards like me.

    What? How can that even be legal? Even as a government employee, should not such a requirement be unconstitutional?

    That sounds like somtething straight out of the “Dictatorship for dummies” book. It did indeed not take long for Trump regime to start to implement policies along the same lines as Erdogan, Putin and all the rest.

    I wonder how long it will take for scientists and journalists and dissenters of all kinds being imprisoned en masse. Or disappearing.

    I’ll be at the march in Edinburgh – after handing out Scottish Green Party newsletters in advance of the local elections on 4th May.

    The March of Science made it to Meet the Press Daily, where Rush Holt, former physicist, later congressman, was interviewed by Chuck Todd about why it is happening. I’ll link to the interview if MSNBC decides post it.

    Arggg! Forgot to mention Rush Holt is CEO of AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science).
