Obama *ucks it up
I’m very much behind everybody, I’m sure, but allow me to express my frustration at the ‘news’ that the person Obama chose to lead the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is Francis Collins. The PhD student from Michigan who told me about it put in terms of ‘that religious maniac’, and she’s more qualified than me to judge the issue. I’ve mentioned Collins’ The Language of God before here, and I don’t have the time or disposition to say more. Except that enthusiasm will eventually wash out, the dust will settle on that Nobel, and then we’ll see how we really stand.
