The Washington Post
An education of the highest order
The July 10 Washington Post Magazine profile of Anthony S. Fauci, “Anthony Fauci looks back,” was impressive, detailed, even inspirational. I really enjoyed reading it. I have to respectfully bring up two issues, however.
It’s a shame that with all the specific detail about what makes Fauci tick — his motivations, his philosophy, his family, how he deals with criticism and stress and so on — not one word was said about any kind of faith he might or might not have. (Some internet research reveals that he was raised Catholic; reports vary on how observant he is, but, apparently, he considers his Jesuit education to have been very important in his formation.)
Second, it would have been interesting to talk to Francis Collins, Fauci’s supervisor at the National Institutes of Health for much of the pandemic (and possibly the reason Fauci kept his job). I am sure Collins would have even more insights.
