Science, illuminated

I am writing to thank HCN and Hillary Rosner for the article "The Color of Bunny" (HCN, 2/6/12). This piece seems to me the epitome of good science writing. It lays out the questions the science is addressing and the reasons those questions are important. Moreover, it provides insight into the process of science -- the importance of curiosity, the disappointment of a missed opportunity, the tentative nature of some conclusions, and the insights that raise new questions. Rosner accomplishes this by means of something rare in today's journalism: She respects her readers.
