[Criticism of a Dave Barry column making fun of scientists]
Since Eric's comments concern not only Drosophilists
and Blattia-ists, but also Dave Barry, I thought
it only proper to cross-post Eric's statement to alt.fan.dave_barry,
with followups set to alt.fan.dave_barry, bionet.drosophila,
I am sure the resulting discussion will provide a valuable
opportunity for people in this group to explain the
importance of basic research to the general public.
