Last week I agreed to toast James Watson for the Human Genome Project on his 90th birthday. My brief comment about his being “flawed” did not go nearly far enough. His views are abhorrent: racist, sexist, anti-semitic. I was wrong to toast. I apologize.— Eric Lander (@eric_lander) 14 May 2018

It’s *after* you apologize that you get in trouble. People smell weakness. They detect the difference between an action caused by principles and one driven by fear. https://t.co/8ZhCEtTnlK— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) 21 May 2018
