As a person who has heart disease, let me tell you, this story is a total eye-opener. I had the surgery they say I didn't need, but I also have radically low cholesterol, healthy blood pressure, and I quit smoking.
Two years ago today we offered New York Times feeds to Radio users for the first time. "Yesterday I said that today's news would be for people who love poetry, books, movies, art, education, food, fashion, health, travel and technology. I left something out. It's also for people who love The Mets."
About John Gray and his PhD. It seems he did get his degree from a mail order university and it wasn't a "real" degree, and to the extent that he claims to be a PhD (broadly) it does appear to be a fraud. His book is still good, and I'd recommend it even if he weren't a PhD. But I do admit that back when I thought his PhD was real, somehow it seemed the book was more substantial. Should he have pressed his claim through a lawyer? No, it was a mistake, because it was dishonest to claim a PhD in the first place. Look at it this way, if he wasn't ashamed about where his PhD came from, why doesn't it say where it came from on his bio page? That's the usual way you do it. I think Gray owes us an apology for claiming to be something that he isn't.
