Scary how applicable Dilbert can be! Sometimes all you can do is shake your head and truly wonder how close to the truth this really is.

Jon, I was a lab assistant to a physician researcher while I was in college. At that time there was a sudden rash of discoveries that many scientific papers had results that were either manipulated, or outright fabricated. The lure of grant money and the pressure of "publish or perish" caused many scientists *working in medical fields* to publish bogus findings.

So Dilbert's right on, sadly enough. And Gina understates the case; it's not just "junk" science, but sometimes "real" science, that gets faked in the name of the Almighty Dollar.
