    ...I was ill at the time you passed through here last month, which really disappointed me.

    I wonder if you could comment a bit on whether the Obama Administration's viewpoint on the value and meaning of science -- so entirely different from Bush's -- will be able to create a political atmosphere that can really support a resurgence in innovation and research.  Particularly in light of the dire worldwide economic realities.

    I suppose what I'm asking is whether "throwing money" at NSF and NIH is sufficient to accomplish much in a society where anti-science bigotry has taken root for so long.
