Richard Carmona, the Surgeon General of the United States of America has this to say in an interview published in this weekends New York Times Magazine. The question was about the Bush administrations anti-science stance:
I will not always get my way. I will disagree on some issues. But frustrated as I might get on some days, you have to pick your battles. I have to ask myself whether I want to fall on my sword and make a career-ending move for something I might be able to accomplish in another way.
My questions are; Is this reasonable? Is it a cop out? What if he never finds another way? Will he really try? Is this attitude the one for which he was selected for the job?
