Remember Dr. Carrington, the scientist in the movie The Thing? A plantlike creature crash-lands its flying saucer near an American research station at the North Pole, causing all kinds of mayhem. Carrington is impressed by the Thing's pure vegetable intelligence. "No emotions, no heart, our superior in every way!" he enthuses. Now there's a mad scientist we can love. See this week's Musing.
