Bioethics Council again

Via Instapundit, we learn that James Q. Wilson has resigned from the President’s Council on Bioethics. The Reason post manages to both to say nothing about Wilson’s motives for resigning and to insinuate that his departure was welcome, while also insulting our friends Peter Lawler and Diana Schaub, neither of whom I would regard as "tractable." Considering that Wilson effusively defended Kass and the Commission publicly less than two months ago (click on the "Q." above), I don’t think Wilson was encouraged to leave.

Dear Joe, I saw it too (thanks to Instapundit). My reaction? "Reason" (sic) = "delirious passion that believes itself to reason" (Rousseau); or, snideness and sneering as substitutes for evidence and conscientious argument. I could go on, but life’s too short.
