Antarctica is a place where science has no borders
Name an "ology" and it's here - biology, geology, paleontology... Science is everywhere in Antarctica.

When I see ravens sitting on my mailbox, carefully peeling the numbers off after tiring of shredding my mail, I can't help but believe they would really love puzzles. No question, they have the minds for more challenging work than opening mussel shells and my mailbox. And they appear to have extra time on their hands. Sure, they hang around your bird feeder or Dumpster, but more than any other animal, a raven would really appreciate a mental challenge while waiting for you to put out something new to eat or for the tide to go out. We need raven games.

The following is an excerpt from an editorial in Saturday's Washington Post: In his farewell address two days before leaving office, President Clinton claimed credit for presiding over "an era of great American renewal." The next day, his last full one in office, he reached an arrangement under which he admitted giving false sworn testimony in the Monica Lewinsky affair.
