The Need For Better Science Popularizations

Is severe.  Hence the news about a program closing is disheartening.  And no, giving undergraduates more science writing courses is not the same thing as a graduate program in it.

The first draft of my "book" on how research into gender and parenting is popularized is finished, and if the book has one general message, it is that we need better science writing from journalists. 

By the way, the manuscript weights 1lb 6oz!  On a kitchen scale.  Doesn't that make me sound involved in a feminine activity?
