Watson's public lecture

My sister had a baby girl. I went to visit her in the hospital, where she spent a lot of time throwing up. I sat in a room with some family and the placenta. It was kinda gross.

Then I went with my folks to Mendy's on 34th street for dinner.

On my way home I saw all these people in the Public library listening to a speech. James Watson was speaking and so I went to listen. It was a dull talk, but it was a thrill to See Watson talk about DNA. He spoke about the future of DNA research. It was to a general audience and the questions were pretty dumb, but it was cool hearing him anyway. He is like a rock star for biologists. It was cool.
