Integrity in politics and science
Koop turned out to be a scientist who believed in data at least as deeply as he believed in God. And he proceeded to alienate nearly every supporter he had on the religious and political right.A fine article from TNY, linked from TNM. And a fine scientist and Christian though also human. You're not doing it right unless everyone hates you, I guess - his handling of the AIDS epidemic managed to annoy just about everyone.
