from the front lines of the war on science

not only is the NIH getting blasted by scientists for becoming too political, now the traditional values coalition is calling for a judicial review of NIH spending.

Dear Congressman Waxman:

I have just received a copy of the letter you sent to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tommy Thompson expressing your "outrage" about questions raised concerning National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants.

Congressman, if you think you are mad wait until you see how angry the American people get when they discover that you and your allies at NIH have been using federal tax dollars to study "lot lizards" - prostitutes who service truckers in parking lots.

how are they bringing the message to the american people? by showing up on FOX news, of course!

now i don't know about you guys, but i don't want tipper gore (or whoever runs TVC these days) having any say in how science research gets funded. period.
