MAPPING WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE: the most accurate map of dark matter ever created.

It's really quite simple: what you can't see is where what you can see isn't.
A MOST DISHONEST TWEET: Sayeth Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on Twitter:
I’ve been on the Armed Services Com for 10 years. No call or meeting w/ Russian ambassador. Ever. Ambassadors call members of Foreign Rel Com.
When caught, McCaskill claimed that there was insufficient room in the 140-character limit to add 'one-on-one' (1-1) before the word 'call' in the tweet. Except that the tweet itself is 142 characters (count 'em).
WHAT A DIFFERENCE AN ELECTION MAKES: Donald Trump declared to the world that he was president of the United States; Barack Obama spent eight years pretending to be president of the world.
SCRAP THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS; the American arts scene will still thrive.
ANOTHER STORY about those 'peaceful' Dakota Access Pipeline protestors. The 'free lunch' crowd - dirty, demanding, and violent....
BRIAN WILLIAMS blames the ‘American people’ for not demanding that Trump release his tax returns. Did it ever occur to him that the 'American people' don't care about Trump's tax returns?
U.S. SENATOR colludes with Russians to influence presidential election. It was a Democrat.

For Democrats, there are never tradeoffs, never unintended consequences.
DISTRUST: the wages of fake news.
BECAUSE HE'S LOOKING FOR A NEW EMPLOYER? Kaepernick to stand for anthem next season.

MORE: "Where’s your courage now that you’re a free agent?"

The Democrats' list is a bit longer....
