succumbing to peer pressure

Monday, April 05, 2004

one more before I run to campus to get some actual work done:

The Union of Concerned Scientists produced a report in February accusing the White House of manipulating scientific results to suit their own policy stances on various issues. The White House recently issued a rebuttal, to which Kurt Gottfried, chair of the Union of Concerned Scientists, replied, "It's possible there are things we got wrong. We're not infallible, like the Vatican or the White House. But I don't think there's any reason to think we got the big picture wrong. In fact, our case is stronger now than when we produced that report" (New York Times, 4/3). (emphasis mine, 'cause I think it's so damn funny)
