    Default OT: Good Doonesbury for Sunday

    I think it's a good idea to avoid electing anybody who is scientifically
    illiterate. You most certainly don't have to be a scientist to
    understand how science works and to be able to reasonably assess
    proposals for scientific funding. When your job is to determine how
    public resources will be allocated, not understanding what you are
    voting for is criminal.

    I consider politicians who don't understand science to be worthless and
    damaging to society.

    "Bert" do you actually have anything constructive to add to the

    who do...

    Of course there have been and are politicians who understand science and
    it's worth! Many from both parties. And from what I can tell this is
    also a good indicator of how well of a job the do governing in general.

    Yes; I already gave you my heartfelt advice to keep anything you care
    about out of the hands of politicians.


    No, just at those who think they can somehow deal with corrupt (or
    simply stupid) politicians and get away clean.

    It works out fine in terms of deciding who I vote for. Plainly, very few
    of the people I vote for actually get elected.
