There is a greatly needed opinion piece in “New West” by a former science journalist-

I want to add that science in many fields is being attacked (not necessarily by the government, but by political groups) in the United States. This turn to ideology, crude self interest, and various religious dogmas will destroy America, IMO. Ralph Maughan
