Lying Your Ass Off

I'm a huge fan of Elizabeth Loftus, who studies human memory. Early on, she made a splash by showing that eyewitness testimony wasn't necessarily accurate. Then she moved on to false memory syndrome. Now she's moving on to practical applications of FMS, using it to treat obesity.

I'd love to have a dinner with Elizabeth Loftus, Joel Hayes, and Susan Johnson, just to listen to the conversations. Joel, the fiddler for my band, is a trial lawyer. Susan, his poopsie, is a professor of nutrition in the Department of Pediatrics at the CU Med School. Her specialty? Pediatric obesity.

If you're reading this and can talk Dr. Loftus into coming, I'll feed you, too.
