Jerry Coyne, a fellow College of William & Mary alum (Class of 1971) and current professor at the University of Chicago, is a renowned evolutionary biologist who blogs and Tweets on that and related topics.
Coyne recently posted an open letter to Deepak Chopra. Seems that Chopra recently initiated a brief Twitter tirade against Coyne. That's interesting, because
although Coyne has over 16,000 followers, he follows no one on Twitter; he learned of Chopra's effort from someone else.
What I enjoyed most about Coyne's post was this poem, set to the music of I Am Woman:
I am Deepak; hear me roar
As you patronize my store,
And buy up all the nostrums that I sell.
You may say that I’m a crank,
But just tell that to my bank,
For I’m Deepak, and you can go to hell.
Oh yes, I am rich,
Though it’s richness born of woo;
And for those whose life’s a bitch,
I will bilk them through and though.
If I had to, I could sell anything;
I’m a crank,
But I’m a scientist—
I am DEEPAK!
