We see the insults and adhoms here, but threats are implied. John writes for the NYT and other liberal publications and journals that might exert pressure. John strikes me as having honesty and fortitude, whereby a few catty remarks would surely roll off his back. I could be wrong, but I see evidence of career threats lurking in the wings.

Glenn Beck has lost a total of 33 sponsors (so far) due merely to a few far right remarks. Journalistic careers are often threatened if you don't support their clients' positions, and I would say John is heavily science invested.

By the way, I'm a science suppoter, big time, and a design theorist.
