Scientific American Gives Up

This is a few weeks old, but it is still funny as hell. Scientific American, a magazine not normally associated with parody or humor, ran the following article:

"Okay, I give up" - Charles Darwin Posted by Hello

"There's no easy way to admit this. For years, helpful letter writers told us to stick to science. They pointed out that science and politics don't mix. They said we should be more balanced in our presentation of such issues as creationism, missile defense and global warming. We resisted their advice and pretended not to be stung by the accusations that the magazine should be renamed Unscientific American, or Scientific Unamerican, or even Unscientific Unamerican. But spring is in the air, and all of nature is turning over a new leaf, so there's no better time to say: you were right, and we were wrong."
