Mea culpa

This morning I put up a post about #GivingTuesday, and some readers responded with alarm because of a comment that seemed to insult my mother.  That was not at all my intention.  What I meant was that I always think of my mother when I'm trying to write to a general audience, not because she's stupid but because she's not a scientist.  So when I'm trying to talk to a nonscientist, I imagine that I'm trying to explain things to her.  That's all I meant.  It was not intended to be an insult to her intelligence.

So for all of you who were horrified, scandalized, or disgusted by my comment, I apologize.  My mother is not stupid.  I know that, and I did not intend to imply otherwise.
