The Colorado Sun: Abert Einstein spent his last years in New Jersey quietly working at the Institute for Advanced Study researching what we now realize was a futile attempt at a unified field theory.
I have heard that when he was asked why he continued to pursue this line of inquiry, he remarked that it was because it was of interest to him and, as someone who was already famous, he didn’t have a career to consider in what he studied.
I often think about that and how I came to doing part-time journalism. I started my Facebook page Colorado Accountability Project recently as an outlet for the things that I research and comment on, but my desire to research what my government is doing and share with others goes back further.
