James Watson lectures cancelled

As the BBC reports (and the Register, and Nature News, and New Scientist, etc etc), many of James Watson's lectures over the next few days have been cancelled due to remarks he made in an interview with the Sunday Times, where he described the intelligence of Africans as lower than Europeans. This means, naturally, that the lecture of his that I was planning to attend on Sunday is also cancelled. It is still shocking, and a shame, when we discover the failings of "great" men.
