"Darwin was the first to use data from nature to convince people that evolution is true, and his idea of natural selection was truly novel. It testifies to his genius that the concept of natural theology, accepted by most educated Westerners before 1859, was vanquished within only a few years by a single five-hundred-page book. On the Origin of Species turned the mysteries of life's diversity from mythology into genuine science." -- Jerry Coyne

The top of Sears Tower (aka Willis Tower) is above the fog in Chicago. For a few months I worked in this building. While it was being built I worked across the street from it. We could see 4 dead workers taken from the building after an elevator fire.
