Best idea I've seen all day....people taking Congress to task for having no system for vetting scientific testimony.  (H/T to Maggie's Farm)

    1. True, but I would hope if you were speaking in front of Congress, you'd jot down a few notes. And, not forget that the level of mercury had actually been dropping for 50 years when you were testifying how bad it was.
