    On the University of Western Ontario homepage, the Department of Psychology portion,
    gave an oddly terse  “commemorative” mention of Dr Rushton’s death, along with a rather
    more forthcoming “commemoratiave” for another member of the Department.  Given that
    it was known for quite some time that he was terminally ill and progressively ailing, it is
    not that “commemorative” was other than deliberate. 

  • Jensen was totally off the media radar. 

    Still standing (and ignored by the media) is 
    Linda Gottfredson.
