NDT Should Close His Twitter

In which I talk about one of the celebrity ambassadors to science just doesn’t manage to handle the fame given to him.

One of Neil’s insensitive posts

Neil has had some pretty awful tweets lately. This is, by far, the worst of them. I think fame has gotten to his head. Combine this with his intelligence and he suddenly thinks that his inane pure logic is somehow relevant or worth listening to. I think this tweet sums up my feelings.

Update: His “apology” (warning: Facebook) is just as tone deaf and insincere and non apologetic as I imagine a man of his massive ego would be. I’ve already written to the Hayden Planetarium. Apparently the only way to deflate this once great liaison to science is to threaten his position.
