The host of a parody question-and-answer series, "Ask Dr. Science" heard on public radio, explains such domestic truths as why we should build fires in the summer to save heat
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Idiot savant of American Public Radio, Dr. Science now commits his particular blend of misinformation--jumbling scientific terminology with arrant nonsense--to the printed page. The good doctor, creation of Coffey and Kessler, ranges all over the landscape here, touching on buying a home, on children and their education, pets, home entertainment, careers and the future of science. Observing that we "lose more heat in a house by building a fire in the fireplace than we gain," Dr. Science suggests building fires in the summer. "It's an extremely efficient means of cooling a home." He further declares that "Spam grows from a spore" and that "Liquid Paper is a fungus." Dr. Science's zany view of everyday matters, sometimes well-targeted and provocative, will be most enjoyed in small bits but is probably best in its original sound bites. Photos.
