When I saw this picture this morning, it made me cry. British Neuroscientist Matthew Cobb, who occasionally blogs on Evolutionary Biologist Jerry Coyne’s “Why Evolution is True” blog, sent this picture to Jerry. It’s from a wall in Paris.

War is stupid. War is fucking stupid. I don’t have the hate in my heart to kill someone over something else that I may want.

Do have a look at the link to Jerry’s blog for today. While he’s posting about his trip and lecture to Antarctica, there are several Ukrainian-related links in his post.

Life’s been a little bit heavy this week, so I haven’t had the chance to write much. I agreed to do a few things with Nebraska Press Women, which I need to finish up tonight or tomorrow. I hope to get something written this weekend and return to my normal schedule of posting next week.

For now, this picture, and the few things below are all I got for now.

One final picture, partly because the 12-year old in me finds this funny and gross and partly because the news has overwhelmed me so much in the past couple of weeks. I’d like to start my week – yes, today is my Monday – with something to smile about. Here is disgraced former Nebraska State Senator Mike Groene.
