Watch Your Citations

TRIGGER WARNINGS :  Is this all science or just "soft" sciences?

For John, BLUFDo you have enough embalmers who are people of color, are of various genders and sexual orientations, or are you just looking for good workers?  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This is by Mr Tom Knighton, today, 17 July 2017, in PJ Media.

The lede:

If you're writing an academic paper on any given subject, you need to do your research and get your facts straight. No, I don't mean about the topic you're writing about. You see, you're not a good academic if you don't discover who the authors referenced in your footnotes like to sleep with.
There is actually an on-line APP for showing how often one is cited.  I followed it for a month or so, but it was depressing, so I stopped.
