Retraction Watch: It's Official

Very cognitive and very elite.


I was reading more on this case, including comments by Potti's current White supervisor in North Dakota. The White - apparently it seems worshipping at the Altar of Asia - praises Potti, and speculates that a reason for the intense interest in the case is "racial discrimination."  Yes, sir, dem facts dey be raycis!  Anil he be a good boy, he dindu nuffin!

Also, the White claims that Potti is an excellent clinician appreciated by the patients, a view that can be contrasted to the objective metric here.  Now, many of those patients seem upset about Potti's previous antics rather than his present behavior; nevertheless, the numbers are what they are.  After all, how comfortable will present patients be with this latest official confirmation?  Patient confidence in their physician is a major evaluative tool.
