I'm a member of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. One of the perks of membership is a subscription to Natural History magazine. Ordinarily, this magazine has some nice, albeit short, articles on a wide range of topics, as well as some good photography. It's directed at the non-scientist — there's nothing in there that will strain anyone's intelligence greatly. That makes what appears in the latest online version of the magazine doubly wrong.
