Sequestration squelching science

(Alright, I'm very proud of that post title).   The news is in, and the news is bad for science.  The sequestration may be stealthy in its impact on the average American, but it is not with regard to scientific research.  The latest news and numbers, to put it bluntly, SUCK.

This figure is blatant and disgusting.  And that's what I think of the Republicans who forced this scenario on us and blame the President for doing what he had to do to avoid the disaster that they were promulgating.  And they are still at it, with budget negotiations reportedly making scant progress on the Hill.

Detestable.  And sad, sad, sad, for the best and brightest coming out of our schools and colleges.
