"First, the interpretation he made of Wakefield's research could have gone either way and he chose to take the interpretation most supportive of the current medical system. Second, I've heard he likes to steal the work of other people and claim it as his own." The same sentiment can be expressed as "The evidence showed that the defendant may or may not be a witch and the judge chose to take the interpretation favored by liberals and socialists. I've heard that the judge himself reads everything printed about witchcraft and likes to present ideas of other people it in his own highly paid speeches. I do not need to offer any evidence nor provide any examples, because from his failure to convict the defendant (whom we all know is a witch) we know that the judge is a witch sympathizer or perhaps a closet witch." I've learned nothing about Dr. Lipkin from your post, but when I hear spluttering rage and ad hominem attacks directed against someone involved in a rational pursuit it makes me think that the target is doing something right.
