Received this morning the sad news that Dr. Barbara McClintock has died.
This unquestionably marks the end of an era, and I thought it should not
go without remark in bionet.plants.

  Scientists [in the US] seem to work hard.  In fact, some of them
    work so hard that there is no time left for serious thinking.
     They should heed the saying: "A busy life is a wasted life."
