PHYSICS TODAY: Sum it up with two great, big nothingburgers and a drink

April 15, 2017


.
For decades, some men have occupied physics workspace, hogged attention, attracted funds and danced their celebrity dance. When all of that has amounted to nothing, it is necessary for the world to know that fact and process that fact. These fops and dandies should not be allowed to go unscathed.

This post is being made to honor the unknown men and women who have tried to make an honest contribution to physics outside the catwalk limelight and found themselves ignored and sidelined because their community was too busy worshiping the false idols.

And what about this community? Who shall judge them?
