In scheduling out next Night School gathering, Jen reminded me that we still haven’t discussed our topic “Social Insects.” I’ve talked before about how once you have something in mind you see it everywhere. As if on cue, the most recent Radiolab podcast downloaded on my computer and it was about ants! Not only is this episode of Radiolab about Argentine ants, they also mention how their research on these ants can act as a Rorschach test, meaning that people see what they want to in the research, both in bad ways and good. We see what we to see, whether we know it or not. Maybe that is a future Night School topic.
