THE MARCHING MORONS REDUX: The recent hysterical attacks on Dr. Matt Taylor for appearing at an interview wearing an arguably garish shirt given to him by a friend reminded me of Cyril M. Kornbluth's science fiction story The Marching Morons. Dr. Taylor, you may recall, is the British scientist whose work for the European Space Agency on the Rosetta mission's landing on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. A man whose efforts helped make possible one of the most stunning scientific achievements of recent times was denigrated by hysterical attacks by perpetually outraged members of the SJW (Special Jelly Warriors) because they didn't like his shirt.
