I have always had a soft spot for HumBio, and was excited to hear of the anniversary event. The event was very well organized, but I was extremely disappointed with the presentations. If you felt the need to focus on politics, it should at least have been even-handed. One speaker could not resist giving a back-handed jab to a prior Administration, and implicitly praising the worst President in modern history, if not our entire history. Completely anti-scientific assumptions were made that, if one fails to completely fall in line with liberal orthodoxy (e.g, on "climate change), one MUST have a "political agenda."
