We recently were asked by a reader if he could use MoS as part of teaching a class of seventh graders about the social dynamics of the web. He wanted to use the comic as an example of a group mind. Therefore, A Miracle of Science is pedagogically approved!* It's acceptable for teaching any child between the ages of two and fifteen.** Reading the archives twice is acceptable in place of the American SAT or British O-levels.***

* No.
** No!
*** Oh, sweet merciful heaven, no.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs (koff) (koff-koff) (ahem)

"What? Why?" you may cry out. Well... I don't feel quite comfortable laying it out in this space. I figure people come to a comic for a comic, not personal blabbering. However, if you click on the friendly picture of Dr. Radium over at the top of this column it will bring you to my LiveJournal where I lay out what's going on (or will as soon as I write the entry.) If you're disinclined to do that, then let's just say it's a very good reason.
