The fact that Masters is at Dartmouth says it all to me. I live 4 miles
from campus ( I grew up here). Dartmouth is a liberal arts college, i.e.
its so called "scientific" studies are typically published for the
purpose of rubber stamping a previously agreed upon politically correct
leftist liberal opinion, lobbying position, or public policy of a
liberal government body. The official position of the faculty is that
objective science is an artifact of bigoted northern european male
culture. These people are so stupid that a professor of toxicology
poisoned herself with mercury and didn't even know about it until she
was in the emergency ward recovering from a two week long coma.
