    My personal favourite comment:

    "Perhaps they could explain how the Canadian Consensus CFS and the Empirical CFS are homographs: Words that sound the same but have different meanings like bow (shoots arrows) and bow (tied with a ribbon). That’s all they have in common. No researcher on the CFSAC committee voices umbrage at the muddling of these disparate groups—this lunacy that passes for science—for fear of alienating the government agencies that feed them."

    Yes, I liked that comment about the 'bow' too! To me this conjured up:

    CCC definition Bow = ('shoots arrows') = effective, serious and targeted results.
    Empiral definition Bow = ('ribbon') = ineffectual, cosmetic and a bit frivolous.

    To get a message across with a clever visual image like this - which makes a valid point, but which also makes people smile - is I think the mark of a powerful writer. Thanks Mindy!
