Williams has suspended the guy
An assistant professor at Williams College and visiting researcher at Yale University admitted in the District's federal court this week that he defrauded banks, the federal government and credit card companies out of $800,000 in the past decade.
The big question is whether his entire early career is fabricated. No one seems to know yet.
I've long said that the academy is a little full of itself and let's hacks who are good at internal politics excel.
This guy, from Princeton,
understands it better than most.
It is no coincidence that his book - On Bullshit
- was a best seller while the companion follow-up, On Truth
, was not.
Bullshit is mysterious and our culture likes it.
