From Ariadne Romano:

Re: Nobel scientist suspended from job over race comments (Oct. 18): Everyone is entitled to one’s opinion. I would ask the question, if the data he was quoting was in fact accurate data. These days so many “studies” are manipulated to suit the cause. He should have been allowed to speak. He may have shed a new perspective on things and at the very least helped others confirm or not their own perceptions.

The employer and the museum need only state a disclaimer that Watson’s statements/opinions are his and not necessarily those of the institutions.
