  1. How about an update on the Stanford president Tessier? A full page in today’s NY Times on him!

    1. As is our usual practice, we do not spend our extremely limited resources chasing stories others — in this case, many, many others — are chasing. We instead link to those other outlets’ work. You might wish to subscribe to the RW Daily, where today you can find links to four stories on Tessier-Lavigne, including two that quote me. https://mailchi.mp/retractionwatch/the-rw-daily-journal-biogeography-strike-resignation-tessier-lavigne-stanford-smut-clyde-wuhan-lab
