Last week, Tim Hunt, Nobel Laureate and all around smart guy, did an unbelievably stupid thing. Amid sorry-not-sorry statements, damage control in the media, and memorable hashtags come marching the apologists. There are many, but here is a guest edit from reader, M^2, on a brief op-ed by Joanna Williams over at Spiked. Here at Red Ink, we appreciate readers willing to jump in and share the work. Thanks, M^2!
There’s a lot of print being generated by Dr. Hunt’s
diarrhea of the mouth remarks, and we’ll update here with anything we feel worthy of inking. If you come across something you’d like to submit, send it along to wieldaredpen (at) gmail.
