Then why is Millgram himself a Piltdown Man? He received his Ph.D. at the same university he received his bachelors at a mere 7 years later (that doesn't leave too much time for alternate careers, given the length of time a Ph.D. normally takes), and he's proceeded to stay in the same field for a good 20 years since then.

Let it not be said that Millgram isn't wily:

"But philosophy consists largely in the exploration of new intellectual niches, of designing standards for those niches, and setting intellectual goals to pursue in them. Therefore, Piltdown Man does not philosophize."

thanks, Ben, for making my day!
