Children disengage from science

One consequence of the politically expedient drive to daemonize Science will a general detachment of students. Thus, as the Cult of Sarah makes fun of scientists studying "The Sex Life of Cockroaches" (a famous attack!), we shove science out of the mainstream. Most science now depends on corporate money, which is notoriously short-term. Although this article applies to the UK, I'm sure that numbers are lower for the bible-belt states, and not so good for Canada either!

Did I mention that hedge fund managers make a lot more money than scientists for a fraction of the intellectual effort?
