Rich Moore

Lynn Margulis
The human brain is a product of natural selection. In the face of scarcity, our hominid great-great-uncles were unable to compete against our sapient great-great-grandparents’ abilities to build more elaborate mental models and orchestrate their bodies’ movements in more sophisticated ways.

David Ebershoff
The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice.
