    I feel very passionate about the issue -- I had at one point entertained a science major and worked for 17 years supporting (the junior DBA job mentioned upthread actually) a very prestigious federal post-doc program.  Tragically IMO, Bush appointees at a few key agencies who sponsored the 50 year old program decided that my organization did not deserve to run it anymore as we were too supportive of James Hansen at NASA/GISS.  So the program is barely hanging on, lots of dedicated staff laid off and hundreds of potential post-docs no longer have slots in this great program.

    Breaks my heart -- not for me, at least my current job is better paying, I'm okay though cranky at times, but for all those potential scientists who have one less avenue to get their careers off the ground.
