Stand With Science.



And then read this.  The Science Policy Initiative is a group that I've tried to support since I arrived at MIT (I took their public policy bootcamp over IAP my first year here).  Admittedly, I've been fairly focused on research lately, but I still stand with them, that's for sure.  Take a gander, see what you think---and then if you agree, sign the petition here (there's already 6000 signatures!)

Thanks for posting about "Stand with Science". I indicated my agreement by signing the petition and will "tweet" about it. Let's hope that Congress realizes that federally funded research is vital to our economy and growth.

Thanks, Mary Kay! R&D is definitely an incredibly important part of how the US competes and makes advances in science and technology.
