While it may well be possible to have "serious reservations about...the legislative approach enshrined in FRPAA", most of the arguments actually made against it seem fairly disingenuous (including the letter linked above).

FRPAA and the NIH mandate only apply to *taxpayer funded8 research. This isn't some sort of land grab -- it's an attempt to maximize the return on our collective investment.


Scott, I am reading David Foster Wallace a lot these days. One of the things I admire most about him is his passionate convictions (about all manner of issues), mixed with a simultaneous refusal to let his mind wander down partisan blind alleys.

You are doing the same thing in the schol comm arena, and that's a great service. Happy Thanksgiving.
