The weather promises to be gorgeous. From denying climate change to denying women's right to abortion, the Nazi, anti-labor, anti-science, anti-women Trump Gang is on the wrong side of history and literally threatens the existence of Planet Earth and humanity. If it is at least as good as the Women's March in the pouring rain on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017, it will be fantastic. To deny science, which means knowledge, in the 21st Century, is ludicrous and unconscionable. Bring the kids to the march and the Science Fair so they can carry on!
