My point is that unless the United States acts as a community,
believing that spending money on research is worthwhile,
because helping each other is a worthy activity,
NIH will likely go the way of NASA.

This is my last Usenet comment.

Thank you for listening.  Sorry to have offended so
many of you.  Perhaps someday you meet me, and tell me
I once told you something important for you.
