      that Chris Parker, who did the study, will start getting death threats. Teabaggers don't generally handle the truth very well.

      •  that's a terrible but valid concern. nt (1+ / 0-)

        That's what they want, that's partly what motivates them make people AFRAID.

        Remember FDR's quote

        We have nothing to fear but fear itself.

        I know academia will NEVER allow 'FEAR' to keep them from study and research

          keep them from study and research all the time. For researchers it's the fear of losing their jobs. Most of them don't have tenure. And I think my being worried about death threats on Mr. Parker's behalf is quite valid and isn't stopping me from doing anything.

          Fear and action are not mutally exclisive.
