Ottawa Op-Ed

Those of you in Ottawa (Canada’s capital city) might want to pick up the The Ottawa Citizen newspaper this Saturday, June 17, 2006. I have an op-ed piece in there about Stephen Hawking’s suggestion earlier this week that humanity needs to establish space colonies in order to ensure the survival of the species. (In Canada, the big weekend editions are on Saturday, not Sunday.)

An “op-ed” piece is an article that appears OPposite the EDitorial — an opinion piece that is the opinion of someone other than the newspapers’ editors. David Watson, who handles op-eds for the Citizen, asked me to write the article on Tuesday, and I was thrilled to do so.
