Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld "Honored"

From Science Blog via Boing Boing:

George W Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld have been "honored" by having species of slime-mold beetles named after them. According to Quentin Wheeler, the professor responsible for naming the beetles,

"We admire these leaders as fellow citizens who have the courage of their convictions and are willing to do the very difficult and unpopular work of living up to principles of freedom and democracy rather than accepting the expedient or popular,"

OK, if you say so. The choice of species seems terribly appropriate to me.

Sorry for no updates recently, will try harder.
