NEJM e-published early a Perspective piece by Elizabeth Blackburn on the President's Council on Bioethics: Bioethics and the Political Distortion of Biomedical Science
. Much of it appears to be a recital of facts and arguments presented in her earlier Washington Post piece
. The PDF is apparently available to the public, not just subscribers, for free. Early, wide, and full-text dissemination by the editors of the NEJM suggest the importance they place on this story.
