37. That's what I thought but wanted to be sure. So, in other words, it is

like a doctor is being sued, and he alters the patient's records before sending them to the lawyer but doesnt realize that the patient (at the urging of her lawyer) got a copy of them a few weeks before, and so now the real records are there along with the forged records, making it clear 1. what the doctor really did, 2. that the doctor attempted fraud and 3, that the doctor had better settle because he has just committed a major professional no no.

Is there a similar ethic when it comes to the sociologic statistical sciences? If this were an academic paper and the author was caught fudging his facts he would be in major hot water.

Who is this Mitfosky guy? Does he pretend to have an academic reputation? Maybe the academic world should take him on, chatise him for being unprofessional.
