Apparently, for some docs, it's never enough. It infuriates me that the people mentioned in the article work on the public dime, develop their inventions on the public dime, but the general public gets squat in return. & spare me the humanitarian bullshit, it's all about the money. Maybe these docs, if they exceed their UW salary with industry "donations", ought to be forced to keep working, but without the public pay.
