    That's what I love about NPR.. They're always looking for the nuance. It's like Art Bell for progressives.

    You really need that saxophone music blaring in the background as they unwind this tale..

    Someone emailed me this, and I started reading like "what?" but then I leaned something that I will most likely never need to have known :)

    So, more like a result than a cause?

    Yes. Did you read the article?

    I probably should have just named the thread "how high plankton influenced southern democratic turnout" or some such :)

    I read most of it, skimmed parts of it.
    I'm pretty sure that the cretaceous period isn't influencing today's US politics with a measurable impact.
