scientists are people too

I was thinking!

The NIH awards a grant, and that may lead to a cure. The place has the equipment, the ideas, but may not have enough scientists. Scientists are called, or however they do that, appointments are made for interviews and that may lead to the research scientist saying this: “I have a spouse, 2 kids, a dog and a goldfish, in fact 2 goldfish. We have friends and family near and we are not wealthy. How long will this job last?”

Sometimes, from what I hear, the answer is not very family friendly, and a lot of scientists have families.
