I wish to express my disappointment that Cipra's article could appear in Science. It is best described as extravagant advertising of unconfirmed ideas. Howlers such as measuring the slope of the deviation function instead of that of the log law of the wall and concluding that the classical theory is in error by 65% is something even my undergraduate students would find hard to believe.
