Update: I've read the article (thanks to all of you who emailed it to me directly!). I just shook my head as I read this. IMHO, she's really in no position to make these remarks and I'm not sure what exactly she was trying to accomplish with her piece? Should us moms just chill out and not pay any attention if our kids pick up a PB&J at a birthday party? Uh, sorry but that will never happen. And as someone who works in scientific publishing (with one of the highest impact factors in all of STM publishing actually), I find her comments and insinuations on the bias of scientific publications laughable. As Bugs Bunny would say, "what a maroon".
Has anyone read the article in this month's Harper's?
I'm going to try to pick up a copy today, but if it's lame and I shouldn't waste my time let me know. I'm afraid it's just an opinion piece saying how all moms of PA kids are overreacting...
