Update on George Deutsch
Wow, apparently despite the fact that the papers have been calling him a graduate of Texas A & M University, George Deutsch didn't actually get his degree! Blogger Nick Anthis, himself an actual graduate from Texas A & M, did a little sniffing around and brought this to light.
And even better news, in the wake of all this international pressure, Deutsch has resigned.

And more from the Bad Astonomer. Seems the journalists who broke the story officially credits Anthis with the find, and the discovery he had lied on his CV lead directly to Deutsch resigning. Yay! Go bloggers!
