Boomer "paranoia" stifles next generation of scientists

"Garage chemistry, as Wired put it, was once 'a rite of passage for geeky kids.' But thanks to the government’s obsessive attempts to root out terrorists and producers of illicit drugs, this country’s bright star in the science realm is fading. The next generation of youth may not have the impetus needed to spark their intellectual curiosity, because increasingly paranoid federal officials don’t trust them with the requisite tools."
