He graduated “in theory”: Enhancing ones resume is not a good idea, especially if you’re only 24 years old and your job is at NASA and you think you need to “control the message” better among science reporters.
Quote from the NY Times:
George C. Deutsch, the young presidential appointee at NASA who told public affairs workers to limit reporters’ access to a top climate scientist and told a Web designer to add the word “theory” at every mention of the Big Bang, resigned yesterday, agency officials said.
Not to get picky, but isn’t the “Big Bang” a theory? It makes sense to me and I assume it is correct, but has it moved from theory to “fact” while I wasn’t watching? Sorry, but I’ve become a skeptic about these things ever since I learned a low-fat diet isn’t necessarily more healthy than a regular diet.
