Ace of Spades links to a Denver Post article which reports:

I don’t know about you, but I’m about as shocked as Louis Renault discovering gambling in Rick’s Cafe (and at least he attempted to feign a penumbra of an aura of mock surprise) by this development. Ace’s guest blogger “Slublog” has some thoughts on how this development is likely to further lower academia’s reputation in the coming years.
