 A recent issue of Science contained an interesting article "Density
 functional theory is
 straying from the path toward the exact functional"[1].
 This has already been discussed on the list in the thread
  "DFT discovers it's recapitulating QSAR"
 I'd like to repeat my arguments in
that you could rewrite the result of the study as a much less catching "Minnesota functionals fail to reproduce electron density in small atoms and cations"
