It seems that publishers need to check authors' background too.

I read that with interest since several of my writing friends and my old man are writing memoirs.

The article left me wondering 'why someone didn't Google the sources"? An intern could do it, and all sorts of interesting stuff appears when you do it.

Universities don't withdraw an earned degree because of disagreements over a scientific principle or theory. And I tend to believe administrators of that university when they say they never awarded the individual a Ph.D. degree. This person is as worthless (in this particular case) as his pretend Ph.D.
