I love reading Roger Ebert, maybe even moreso when he's talking about something really complicated—because he has a way of pulling things down to size. This entry of his was one of my favorite commentaries on the God particle:
I don't understand the Higgs boson in the way a theoretical physicist does. What I know is that inside that mountain on the Swiss-French border, they went looking for something and they found it. They will keep on looking for centuries after we are dead. Maybe someday they will find God. Wouldn't that be a gas? Whatever they find, they will find more and more and more. It's not turtles all the way down.
(Or maybe I just like that he says "it's not turtles all the way down.")
