In personal news today, AP (through Reuters) carried a report about a possible end of the road for another pseudo-scientist.
ATLANTA (AP) - An Emory University professor and author of a disputed, prize-winning book about guns in America was placed on paid leave for the fall semester amid an investigation into possible academic fraud.
Michael Bellesiles' "Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture," received national attention for its contention that early Americans did not own or use firearms in great numbers.
The book sparked fierce criticism from gun-rights advocates, and scholars suggested that Bellesiles made serious errors, prompting Emory to begin a probe in February.
Now if all libraries stamped the book with big red "Warning: 100% lies" label, we might be on to something here. But I am not holding my breath. And besides, if American youth cannot distinguish bullshit from research, it deserves to be corrupted anyway. Should not have slept though those critical thinking classes.
