Editor, Jon Madison is a likable character, but his misrepresentation of academic and professional accomplishments, his repeated and flippant denials, and his never-ending attempts to portray himself as a victim, clearly show that he is unfit to occupy a position of public trust and responsibility. Mr. Madison was apparently happy to bask in the reflected glory of […]
