As a quasi-semi-somewhat-sort-of scientist, I have to say that one of the things that makes me happiest to see President Obama in place is that every major speech he gives, he seems to emphasize the fact that in his administration, science will be restored to its proper place in the world: namely, decisions about issues that are primarily scientific in nature will be considered from a primarily scientific viewpoint. After years upon years in which science played a tertiary, or worse, role to religion and politics, this is a very welcome change.

Yours, in anticipation of the reality based world reaffirmed,
