Help send your cartoonist to D.C.!
Each year the Union of Concerned Scientists sponsors a cartooning contest on the topic of political interference in science. Hundreds of entries are whittled down to 12 cartoons to appear in their calendar, and this year Daily Planet editorial cartoonist Justin DeFreitas has two of the 12. The public votes on the best of the 12 and the winner gets an all-expenses-paid trip to D.C. and their cartoon on the cover of the calendar.
You can vote for DeFreitas' "Lab Coats" cartoon (No. 11) here: http://ucsaction.org/campaign/science_idol_2008_vote
Voting closes Aug. 8.
