A Faustian Bargain

A scientist smacks down the prez of SUNY-Albany. Petsko's letter is long, but since it is also bold, clever, and funny, worth taking the time to read.

  1. Petsko is an incredible person. I'm on sabbatical in the Petsko-Ringe lab at Brandeis. His undergrad degree was in classics at Princeton. His PhD (DPhil?) is from Oxford. He was a tenured prof at MIT and left to come to Brandeis which has a very strong undergrad liberal arts operation. No better guy...

    ps. I liked the fact that Kaler made strong statements about the liberal arts. We will remember them..

    pps. When he looked at the Eva video, his remark was: "I'd like to shake that woman's hand."
