(Briefly mentioned in the interview) The snail darter--a tiny fish once on the endangered species list--is back in the news!

Twenty years after 9/11: I look back at fact-versus-fiction in the root causes of the terrorist attacks, and assess our success after two decades of fighting the so-called War on Terror.
