Via the New York Times comes the news that the Obama White House will be holding Science Fairs to honor those individuals who are capable at producing scientific knowledge and events, and not just those who are good at sports:
“If you win the N.C.A.A. championships, you come to the White House. Well, if you’re a young person and you’ve produced the best experiment or design, the best hardware or software, you ought to be recognized for that achievement, too,” Mr. Obama said. “Scientists and engineers ought to stand side by side with athletes and entertainers as role models, and here at the White House, we’re going to lead by example.”
To this I say: Fuck Yeah, Science.
