From the department of not understanding politics, Neil deGrasse Tyson tweets:
"Candidate Endorsements matter if you'd rather have a famous person, an organization, or media entity do your thinking for you"
Tyson, a prominent astrophysicist and science commentator (with five million Twitter followers!), is criticizing those of us who rely on this kind of information to vote.
It's possible that he skips a lot of elections. Most citizens, even those who vote regularly, do. Or he may carefully study the policies and qualifications of each candidate in each election for which he's eligible to vote, and all the bond measures and initiatives, too.
I somehow doubt it. To fully examine each of those elections -- local, state, national -- would practically be a full-time job.
