As we rely more and more on the sciences for the future of society’s search for truth, their culpibility becomes more and more critical, so they should expect further scrutiny. It will help.

Everybody scrambles to get ahead in their careers, whatever their careers are. I’m glad we’re being made aware of it more now; I don’t know if it’s actually _happening_ more or just being publicized more (that’s a classic issue that’s hard to resolve entirely)

Better watchdogs are necessary. It would be nice if the Sciences were an entirely self-contained, self-regulating system, but they’re not – probably never were, as there are links to politics, funding sources, and plain ol’ desire to achieve.
