'Race row' Nobel winner James Watson suspended

Wow - James Watson and Francis Crick were on a pedestal for most of my adolescence/young adulthood - sad to see this.
It reminds me of Larry King admitting he has never used the Internet - I have come much farther because of the ability to anonymously express ideas and get feedback on those ideas without being vilified (though I'm a no-name anyway :-).  Wish Watson had had the same ability and taken advantage to hone what he was saying, instead of coming off as a bigot...
