UD‘s buddy Carl Elliott does not mince words in the matter of the University of Minnesota and the death under its care of Dan Markingson.

There’s simply too much pharma money at stake for anything like true remorse, much less meaningful change.

But expressions of pride in the university in these circumstances are … UD has no words for that.

    Linked article reads like something from “The X Files”. “Culture of fear”. Department chair also a paid industry consultant? The guy was walking point for Big Pharma, and nobody told him there might be the appearance of conflict with his scholarly work?

    Jack/OH: I think this is a classic case of the sort of story that will yield all sorts of horrors if one only has the opportunity to know it and tell it.
