President Lee Sets S. Korea back a few years

Leading scientists all over S. Korea are now handing in their resignations.
Why? Because the new president of Korea (Lee Myung-bak AKA. Lee Myeong Park) says so.

An Insult to Science

The heads of government-funded science research institutes, including the Korea Institute of Science and Technology and the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, have all turned in their resignations. The heads of state-funded research institutes specializing in industrial technology, including the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute and the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials, are said to be getting ready to do the same. The government's attempt at replacing the heads of state-owned companies and government agencies is spreading to the field of science.
