When the ego becomes God it can get self indulgent

WHY A FAKE ARTICLE TITLED "CUCKOO FOR COCOA PUFFS?" WAS ACCEPTED BY 17 MEDICAL JOURNALS 
A HARVARD SCIENTIST WANTED TO SEE EXACTLY HOW EASY IT IS TO GET MEDICAL RESEARCH PUBLISHED. IN SOME CASES, $500 IS PRETTY MUCH ALL IT TAKES. 
BY ELIZABETH SEGRAN 
As a medical researcher at Harvard, Mark Shrime gets a very special kind of spam in his inbox: every day, he receives at least one request from an open-access medical journal promising to publish his research if he would only pay $500.

this kind of devolution is not limited to the medical establishment. It can be found in the pay to publish experimental psychology industry as well...

Comcast Is Also Changing Customers’ Names To “Whore” And “Dummy”

This is not how Comcast wanted to end a week that saw it having to explain how a supposedly rogue employee could change a customer’s name to “A**hole Brown.” Other customers have since come forward claiming they also had their names tweaked for the worst by Comcast staffers.

I think it's cool. :)

Besides, someone self published "My Lactation Consultant Is A Lesbian Werewolf." My head could hurt a heck of a lot worse.

Dionysos Archetype of Individuation
By Klemens Swib
Price: $5.99 USD. Words: 52,070. Language: English. Published: May 26, 2014. Category: Nonfiction » Psychology » Movements / Jungian
If the Dionysian myth is a psychic projection, as Jung suggested, could it be reversed engineered back into the psyche. If we could complete this reverse engineering project, might we concomitantly discover a Rosetta Stone providing us with a key to understanding the language of the internal aspect of nature. Would we also discover the Greeks created a sophisticated interactive map of the psyche.

Purchased. :)

Comcast Renames Man ‘Asshole Brown’ After He Tries to Cancel Cable 
BY ROBERT MCMILLAN 01.28.15 | 7:10 PM |

Comcast probably doesn’t relish being one of those companies that many Americans love to hate. But sometimes, the cable giant makes this way too easy. 
Consider the case of Ricardo Brown. After Brown’s wife had a disagreement with the cable company recently, Comcast started sending him monthly statements under the name “Asshole Brown.” 
*******
when god is dead the ego becomes god and it must inevitably run amok. Incivility to others becomes the norm. The guys running comcast are only a little further down the slippery slope than most.

This kind of devolution has no limits. Whatever can be sold will be sold in a P.T. Barnum world.

Ouch you got me again holy. I am a self published author.... lol 

Comment by Holly Esch on January 29, 2015 at 3:50am
You could say the same thing about the self publishing industry. When someone brags that he or she is a published author, there's traditional publishing, where your manuscript is vetted for publication by a publishing house, and self publishing, which anyone can do. As anyone who follows the Lousy Book Covers blog knows, the bar isn't just low, it's nonexistent.
