Today is a day to recognize the importance of math and science to the American economy around the theme of Pi or the Greek symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter that is rounded to 3.14.Committee on Science and Technology Chairman Bart Gordon (D-TN) offered a resolution in the House to honour the day. The resolution passed 391-10. It is interesting to note that those who voted against the resolution were all Republicans. I checked a list of Representatives and vetted the findings. There were a few GOP members who voted alongside their Democrat colleagues but the 'Yea' votes were mostly along blue state political lines. The GOP needs to make science more of a priority if they are to gain any credibility in public confidence.
