Given the venue, the lead time, the collective intelligence contained in them who will be graduating and the many possible ways to respond, this is a very telling response. The tactic of silencing one with whom you disagree rather than giving, logically and calmly, the opposing argument is indication of the poverty of the opposition. Johns Hopkins’ reputation has become smaller in my estimation.
I agree with you. It sure makes you wonder what marvelous medical advances (if any) are going to come out of this graduating class, eh?
