*sigh* Any of y’all familiar with the history of DNA research know why it’s vaguely icky to have to listen to James Watson this year instead of, say, Rosalind Franklin (RIP). The foolishness out of his mouth continues, as you probably knew it would, as he tells a documentary maker in the UK that science ought to get rid of stupid people and ugly girls. How ’bout jackasses with Nobel prizes in synthesizing other people’s research while contributing almost none of their own? Can we screen for that too? (Oh, lord, now we’re in search of the postmodernism gene.) If there is a just afterlife, Dr. Franklin is waiting for this guy with a lead pipe.
