In Praise of Emily Hesaltine

I guess Anya Kamenetz would have us believe that Emily Hesaltine was working a fake job this summer on her internship. Her supervisor thinks otherwise. From the New York Times Opinionator:

Can a 20-year-old summer intern outwork the entire Department of Homeland Security? Yes, and in only two months, says Michael Stebbins, director of biology policy for the Federation of American Scientists. Emily Hesaltine, Stebbins’s summer intern, built a Web site,, that, Stebbins says, “provides better public preparedness information than the Department of Homeland Security’s

It looks like a great site.

Sure it was a real job. Then, why was it unpaid?
