March for Science!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of marching in downtown St. Paul, MN for the March for Science.

I wanted to share my pictures with you and feel free to comment about your science background in the comment section below.

That all being said, I believe my government recruits its ministers from the Jim Henson workshop on a regular basis…
