  20. Good luck Henry. Here is an interview with Henry Harpending, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pNn3gOELAg. He is asked a dumb question at 8:02 and his answer is worth listening to. We can all aspire to think like scientists, humanity is going forward because science is going forward, and science is going forward because of people like Henry Harpendeng.

  27. st says:

    Shocked and saddened. Best man on the field,example of academic honesty and dignity. Wishing him full recovery. The saddest thing – there was a cure. It might not be too late. Piracetam works miracles in cases like his. Recovery rates sometimes full. In use for 60 years in most of the rest of the world as first line of treatment. Must be given the first 7 hours post stroke in liquid form intravenously in hospital environment, 9 grams per 24 hours for 7 days, 4.2 gr. in pill form after first week for prevention. Of course,FDA has never heard of it. Most people recover fully, speech, reading and motion or at least there is never repeat. Brain learns to read and write again, relocates the center of reading from right to left or vice versa.
    So sorry to hear that.

  28. Oh goodness. All I can say is I’m hoping for the best. :_( I’ve loved this blog for years.

  29. I am more upset than I would’ve expected. The nation can ill afford to lose men of Pr H quality. And he was the baddest good cop in the history of the routine. I’ll be mentioning him in my prayers.

    Terrible news. There are few such talented, brave, and honest academics in this country. The temporary loss of even one is a tragedy. I will say a quiet prayer for him and what I hope will be his quick and full recovery
