In our day, scientists are born BUREAUCRATS, which leads them to determine which side their bread is buttered on, and skew their researches accordingly.

I do not share this lofty view of "the scientific community," because the academic tenure system and the fact that the vast majority of grants come from government and are thus political in nature, leads me to conclude that, humans being what they are, they're just as likely to feather their own nests as anyone else.

The problem is, they want to make sure that their nests are feathered with MY MONEY.
