Morning Coffee (weening off still)

Last week I discussed James Watson’s The Double Helix: A Personal Account of the Discovery of the Structure of DNA with my students. This clip is a nice summary of contention. If interested, read the critical edition. A fantastic read of personal glory at the expense of others, some sexism and trash talking.
