Genetic Crossroads
February 4th, 2000

"We should be on our guard not to overestimate
science and scientific methods when it is a
question of human problems; and we should not
assume that experts are the only ones who have
a right to express themselves on questions
affecting the organization of society."

--Albert Einstein (Time Magazine's "Person
of the Century"), May 1949.
