When lives are on the line, it is all the more a reason to use sound methodology to find out what can be done. A surgeon does not save lives by being a compassionate, caring, human being. A surgeon saves lives by being competent and making the correct decisions based on facts.

If there is one thing that America doesn't need, it is calls for more irrationality and "common sense" approaches to complex problems. We have enough of that coming from all sides of every debate, to the point where the entire political discourse is completely dominated by it.
