Letter To Editor by Trisha Vigil, Ashland Daily Tidings, January 10th 2017, Med ford Mail Tribune, January 17th 2017, Rogue Valley Messenger, Jan 19th 2017

Integrity is the quality of being honest and fair. Most of us would probably like to be thought of as displaying integrity since we generally value integrity in others. When someone, politician, businessman, neighbor, or family member shows us dishonesty or deception, their integrity is lost. Like virginity, integrity is an attribute that, once lost, can never be recovered.

In science, integrity is critical. If one’s opinion is challenged by the evidence, integrity demands questioning the opinion, and rejection if it’s falsified by the evidence. We must hold science and scientists to the bar of integrity. Apparently, no such expectation exists for politicians.
