  •  good points! At one time when I was hearing (0+ / 0-)

    the name Robert Kennedy Jr bandied about for head of the EPA, I warned an EPA friend of mine that Kennedy couldn't be trusted because he doesn't understand science. He's one of those "vaccine-causes-autism" people who doesn't seem to have even a cursory understanding of or respect for science -- ignoring the numerous studies that decimate any theory of a relationship between vaccines & autism.
    And like what you said about some of the top people at Komen, the vaccine-autism people ignore many possible causes such as pesticides and other environmental pollutants.
    People who are willing to ignore scientific findings in order to promote their ideology, religion, wishful thinking or profits don't deserve to run organizations whose very basis is scientific.
