While I can understand the reasoning that keeps political posts off this
list, I believe a forum where the impact of politics on science can be
discussed would be a good thing. After all, political decisions do affect
funding, and politicians need to understand what scientists are doing well
enough to be able to make wise decisions. Furthermore, there _is_ such an
academic field as political science. It would seem that the interaction of
politics and science is a legitimate discussion area for ASA.
