I can assure you that a private plane to fly you someplace to have weekends off is not a standard part of the czar package.

The lengths we go to to ensure not one federal dollar goes to alcohol. But obviously a different story if buying from a Trump property.

Except: fact checking would undermine my favorite heuristic for evaluating 30,000' books: draw graph below. If slope is negative, v bad sign. Esp devatstating is the experiment of reading up on a new area and seeing if opinion drops - point moving down/right on the graph

10y ago the major error in research was unjustifiably attributing correlation to (a preferred direction of) causation. As experimental methods have risen the threat has shifted. Must not confuse "some mice" with "most/all humans."

That magic air-stuff seems to do all sorts of bad things. Unless it's just a Chinese conspiracy to hobble our competitiveness. It seems to be powerful stuff.

Why would anyone think Neil deGrasse Tyson is an authority on bioethics? Isn't this the guy who is constantly publicly demonstrating his ignorance of, and disdain for, the humanities?
