It’s like, so _hard_ to keep that resume current

This is so rich. George Deutsch, the press aide accused of censoring NASA scientists, has resigned. This after NASA administration reacted to the increasingly vocal complaints by their scientists. Deutsch allegedly told NASA employees that his job was “to make the president look good”.

Michael D. Griffin, the NASA administrator, issued a “statement of scientific openness” to all NASA employees saying, “it is not the job of public affairs officers to alter, filter or adjust engineering or scientific material produced by NASA’s technical staff.”

Well, Deutsch was young and inexperienced. More than we knew. The NYT recently reported that Deutsch faked his resume. Deutsch has since given an interview with the Texas A&M radio station in which he proclaimed his innocence.

The Times reported on Wednesday that contrary to his résumé on file with NASA, Mr. Deutsch, who is 24, never graduated from Texas A&M. Yesterday, in an interview with The Times, Mr. Deutsch said he had written the résumé in anticipation of graduating.

Right. An easy mistake to make, what with all the pressure and work associated with not graduating.

Finally, Deutsch tried to explain his remarks to the designer of an Albert Einstein web site about the origins of the universe.

“We are both Christians, and I was sharing with him my personal opinions on the Big Bang theory versus intelligent design”
