See What Happens When You Get Linked To By Me?

You get interviewed by the NY Times:

Mr. Deutsch's educational record was first challenged on Monday by Nick Anthis, who graduated from Texas A&M last year with a biochemistry degree and has been writing a Web log on science policy, scientificactivist.blogspot.com.

After Mr. Anthis read about the problems at NASA, he said in an interview: "It seemed like political figures had really overstepped the line. I was just going to write some commentary on this when somebody tipped me off that George Deutsch might not have graduated."

He posted a blog entry asserting this after he checked with the university's association of former students. He reported that the association said Mr. Deutsch received no degree.

The rich just get richer huh Nick?

Seriously though, great job. And if anyone else wants to be quoted in any future editions of the NY Times, shoot me an e-mail with a blog post of yours, a tip, or a comment and I'll see what I can do about that.
