I've never considered myself to be much of a scientist. In school I'd get frustrated with how long it took to set up the experiments. I felt bad for the frogs and rats we dissected in biology, and a lot of science requires doing math. So when I called Greene County Geologist Matt Forir last week to set up an interview for a story, I suspended my biases toward science, thinking it'd be cool to learn about the county's caves, sinkholes and fault lines from the only county-level geologist in the country. What I did not realize was that I'd be a part of a geological discovery.
