"Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant" -Louis Brandeis

It seems that folks are beginning to notice that an Indiana State Board of Education member's dissertation appears to be plagiarized.  Dr. Doug Martin has authored this letter to Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.  Doug's letter helped to draw more attention to this matter.  Also, the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette has published this article on the Purdue investigation of the person in question.  I am now even more confident that Purdue will handle this situation appropriately, given the "sunlight" that has been afforded this apparent case of academic dishonesty.
