Fiction: "Sociologist on Rally to Restore Sanity: Aristophanes on a National Scale"

On October 20, 2010, “Ulsterman” published an article at Socyberty entitled "Sociologist on Rally to Restore Sanity: Aristophanes on a National Scale." This is an excerpt of that article:
Sociology professor James Good of Arkansa’s Hendrix College makes no attempt to hide his enthusiasm for the
upcoming Rally to Restore Sanity event to be held on Washington DC’s National Mall on October 30th.

The article continues with extended quotations from "Professor James Good."

There is no "sociology professor James Good" at Hendrix College. He, and the extensive quotations attributed to him, appear to be nothing more than fabrications by "Ulsterman." The photo accompanying the article, depicting a relatively young man staring at a computer, has no specific details indicating that it is of a college professor, and instead appears to be a fairly generic stock photo of a young man at a computer.

Following my communication with “Ulsterman” where I revealed that I knew he had made up “Jan Wendt,” this article was scrubbed from “Ulsterman”’s archives. Fortunately, I saved a copy of it.
