Jul 29, 2015 whiskeypony commented on Why Is America So Upset About the Death of Cecil the Lion?.
Killing for sport is vile. BUT Cecil already contributed to the gene pool and he was getting on in years- 13 is geriatric for a wild male - and most likely would be killed by other male lions in the next year or so.

Feb 27, 2015 whiskeypony commented on Leonard Nimoy.
I was a candystriper and I got to serve mr. nimroy dinner a few times while he was hospitalized at Overlake a decade or so ago. He was charming and gracious even in a hospital gown. What a gentleman and what a loss.
Feb 17, 2015 whiskeypony commented on Sea Stars Could Be Making a Comeback.
There are already a bunch of long-term research projects with permanent data collection towers, buoys, and research stations - UW's Friday Harbor Labs that have had studies ongoing since before the 1940s, Puget Sound Ambient Monitoring Program, the huge blanket of research from NOAA, the enormous body of work through the Puget Sound Partnership - but the hinderance is that no one has the time or the money to keep many long-term studies going.

Long-term data collection means no papers written until a decade or so in, and no one can build a career on that kind of publication record any more.
