Title: “I maintain there is much more wonder in science than in pseudoscience
Thomas Jefferson said it best. "No government ought to be without censors & where the press is free, no one ever will."

The first action a dictator takes when he takes control is to shut down the free press.

I know most of you I talk to delete all these posts about the UAE, but this is entire article worth reading (mainly because it appears to be one of the few that isn't their ruler's press release).  When you shut down your most popular newspaper for 3 weeks to cover your tracks...right out in front of everybody, I can only imagine what kind of bribes you'd offer under the table to keep a story quiet! Better watch your back MaryAnne.
