Re: Nobel Prize winner James Watson: "I'm Senile, I'll Go Away Now"
I was needlessly flippant in my thread title. This is a tragedy, especially in these days when the imprimatur of 'science' is too often for sale to the highest bidder. This is James Fucking Watson, not some corporate shill or high school biology teacher. The fact that those were his beliefs will reverberate for decades, providing a foundation, however tenuous, for those of similiar misconceptions.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
