Richard Dawkins was asked why he refused to debate a creationist. His reply was something like "Because it would look great on his resume, but on mine, not so much." Why grant that hack Adam Feuerstein the credibility that comes from mere acknowledgment by someone as accomplished as Rudy Tanzi.
That is naive. Adam preys on moral scientists because he is a gutter snake. If you aren't interested in the price per share , perception in the financial markets than you are right. Everything from here on out till results and then after is about paying for trials and making the best deals with big pharma as a partner on a compound by compound basis. To get to the prize.
I rather appreciated his standing up to him today, because those guys were like locusts swarming in twitterland, and no one else could stand up in the middle of that to the extent Tanzi could (and without ever losing his dignity), but I agree, any more of that beyond today (and after the cc, which I presume will be made available on the site) would be unproductive.
I don't know about how others felt about the CC, but it struck just the right chords with me. I think the market's ready to take this forward with real confidence now as we head towards March an the AD trial (not to mention future presentations/publications regarding both trials).
