NEB support for UCS


Dear Mr. Ellard:

I was shocked and dismayed to find via your correspondence with Andura
Smetacek that New England Biolabs supports the Union of Concerned
Scientists, whose views on biotechnology have long been anti-scientific
and, even more than that, anti-social. These extremists are truly the
bottom of the intellectual and ethical barrel.

You leave those of us in the scientific community no choice but to
publicize your company's anti-science posture through our professional
associations, and to enourage our colleagues to boycott your company.

Sincerely yours,

Henry I. Miller, MD
Stanford University
