I wrote a rather popular post on how I thought Randy Schekman was a hypocrite, but of course, hypocrisy is not limited to genomics.

A committee of politicians in the UK, the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, has called for action over the “dearth” of female scientists.

Take a look at the committee membership.  Nine men, two women.   Ridiculous.

I agree with their message, whole heartedly, but they rather lack credibility when their own house membership is so skewed.
