Author: Randy Cohen
QUOTE: [1] I’m a history professor... — with an M.A. student who wants to pursue a doctorate...Must I [recommend her] if I find her views incongruent with those of historians? [2] I [bought] a painting at a local art gallery...Days later, the gallery said it was returning my money because [another] prospect had purchased the work. I later learned this buyer wrote a positive review of the exhibition in the local paper. Did the gallery act ethically?
