Another physicist in Congress

Thanks to a special election to fill the IL-14 seat of former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, there is another physicist in Congress, Bill Foster. Good for him. We need more civic scientists.

Well, any person is more than his CV, but I have to say: Rush Holt has done well by us so far. So yes, more physicists in Congress!

I dream of a day when this great Nation of our might even elect a physicist to the Presidency...
