Don't say we didn't warn you.

It's a start, I guess...

We sociologists often express the desire that people pay more attention to us. Fair enough, but I think we might want to be a little more specific about that. Last night my wife and I were watching an episode of the new series "Defying Gravity" online.* At one point a character, referring to a baby rabbit she wanted help with, said:

Just think of it as a sociology project- people bonding with pets in space.

And suddenly I realized that the writers have evidently been keeping track of ASA sections** and sections-in-formation.

* If anyone is curious, I think the show has potential but it isn't really "there" yet. I would also advise that, if you watch it, you be prepared to deal with a truly maddening mixture of good science and badly thought out science.

** Has anyone else noticed that the logo for the Animals and Society section makes it looks like the man has eaten a cat?
