If you missed Jeneen Interlandi's story about Eric Poehlman, former UVM researcher sentenced to prison for fraud, check it out. It's a fascinating account of how a whistleblower lab assistant exposed his boss for fudging data.
I know this got covered by the local media, but I really enjoyed reading the Times' long-view perspective.
My only quibble?
After the hearing, Poehlman walked through downtown Burlington with his mother and a group of young colleagues from Montreal who had come to show their support. The rain had stopped and the sun cast a bright shimmer over the wet cobblestone streets.
What cobblestones? We don't have any cobblestone streets downtown. Church Street is paved with bricks.
