NYT magazine about Freeman Dyson

Yes, I took this picture.
The Civil Heretic (by Nicholas Dawidoff)
Freeman Dyson is an eminent scientist who has achieved a lot, whose integrity and breadth are extraordinary, and who is skeptical about various things including global warming and the crucial importance of colliders in particle physics.

While it should be obvious that your humble correspondent only shares some of his skeptical positions (and on the contrary, I am skeptical about many futurist ideas by Dyson), it would be unnatural if TRF didn't contain a link to this poetic and comprehensive article. ;-)
