Glenn Reynolds and Mark Krikorian link to this article about the difficulty scientists are having in finding work. One feels for the scientists, and yet . . . do they speak out when politicians criticize drug companies' profits? (A non-rhetorical question; I'd like to know.) It’s those profits that enable R&D, and R&D that permits the retention and hiring of researchers. If they want jobs in the field, then I hope they forthrightly defend the profits that create those jobs.
