Jeffrey Glassberg is not a lawyer. He is a trained and succesful molecular
biologist who loves butterflies. I would do some things differently than he
does them, but I would be proud to have done what he has done. He is hardly
anti-science. If you want to attack anti-scientists, attack Bernard d'Abrera
or George Bush.

Scientist (population biology), collector (mostly bees), watcher (of anything
that gets near flowers) and thorn-in-side,
