Astrologers advise the minister

The science page in today's Daily Telegraph carries an article by Roger Highfield on alien life. Highfield informs us that "Seven leading British astrologers" were advising the Science minister on this question. If that is where the government is going for advice, no wonder they are also seriously contemplating allowing the teaching of intelligent design in British state schools.

Hi Anthony,
It was, of course, meant to say astronomers, not astrologers! My article was changed after I had checked what I thought was the final proof (my original said "experts"). An egregious error and proof, as if we need it, that the second law of thermodynamics rules journalism too. Best, Roger Highfield

Naturally, I did realize this, but I found it irrestible!
