On Tuesday, nine new science-credentialed candidates were elected: one senator and eight members of the House. The members of the current 115th Congress include one physicist, one microbiologist, and one chemist, as well as eight engineers and one mathematician. The medical professions are slightly better represented, with three nurses and 15 doctors.

I was surprised to see that a Google search revealed 80 Congressmen/women and 24 senators are military veterans. Being a jerk is typically beaten out of one in the armed forces, so the rest of our elected officials are making up for the more stable folks...

All democrats. No surprise there. Republican "scientists" are called pastors.

Scientists are trained to value precision, clarity and honesty.

They're going to go insane in Congress.

I have hope that some of these Congress men and women will be much like Francis Collins.
