Unlucky, Jim

It's a sorry state of affairs when a Nobel prize-winning scientist is ostracised from the academic community and forced into auctioning off his medal just to raise the cash. Or at least it would be if it weren't James Watson we're talking about, a bigoted dinosaur who has ostracised himself through the expression of racist views. He may have been part of the pairing that discovered DNA, but sympathy for his plight is rightly in short supply.
