Larry Krasner, a civil rights attorney and relative political outsider, won the Philadelphia primary election to become the city's Democratic nominee for attorney general on Tuesday. As NPR reported, Krasner is expected to win the general election in November, as Democrats have a 7-1 registration advantage in the city.

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.
