Facts, evidence, and truth
Obama's radio address today:
Because the truth is that promoting science isn't just about providing resources - its about protecting free and open inquiry. It's about ensuring that facts and evidence are never twisted or obscured by politics or ideology. It's about listening to what our scientists have to say, even when it's inconvenient - especially when it's inconvenient. Because the highest purpose of science is the search for knowledge, truth and a greater understanding of the world around us. That will be my goal as President of the United States - and I could not have a better team to guide me in this work.
Good -- but/and let's hope this applies across the board.
If it does, I think all of us will end up being very happy.
NOTE We might start with health care....
