    about the more subtle form of censorship going on. As an EPA scientist, I have been appalled that this administration has curtailed all of our access to the outside world. Our reports are reviewed by non-scientists for "biased" language, and we are not allowed to field any questions from the public or press. All communication must be done through the D.C. PR office. In other words, If someone looks me up online as an EPA scientist and calls me in my office about what research I'm working on, I am not allowed to respond to them. I am require by the current leadership to forward all requests for information to the PR office.
    On top of this, the feds recruit top scientists and then silence them, basically creating a "sink" for scientists and their data ala the la brea tar pits.
