Lead Times Are A Bitch

So today's big science story is that we've found good evidence for dark matter. Today as I'm eating lunch I'm reading the August issue of Discover magazine (Yeah I'm one behind - September came in last week) and run across the article about Mordehai Milgrom and his research into modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND). Thing is, the strongest argument for MOND is basically that with no direct evidence for dark matter, MOND is just as plausible. Until two gas clouds run off and collide somewhere in space. Isn't that just like a pair of gas clouds? Unreliable little things.

Feel free to post theories about why my day is synchronistically about the fundamental cosmological equations of the universe. Normally, not so much news about galactic-level structures of matter.
