Quirks, quarks and vanishing taxonomists

Just thought you all might be intersted to hear that the Canadian popular
science newsmagazine "Quirks and Quarks" (CBC radio) did a compelling
20-minute lead story today on the decreasing support for taxonomic
research and the implications to biology and museums.  It hit on many of
the concerns that have been raised recently on these lists.  I only hope
it was heard by more people than the one "true believer" sitting with his
ear glued to the car radio in a busy shopping mall parking lot!
