This is an oldie but a goodie. It’s John Rennie, editor-in-chief of Scientific American, describing a dinner he attended with captains of industry such as Craig Barrett, CEO of Intel, and more than a dozen university presidents. He took the opportunity to harangue them about the sad state of affairs regarding the Kansas science standards and declining respect for the “fact” of NeoDarwinian theory. Their reaction was to politely tell him to go away as they had more important concerns about science education in America and those concerns had nothing to do with evolution. Rennie’s petulant reaction is just precious.
