Commentary relating to Sternberg ...

... who, for those people who might read this but not some of the other ID sites I read, was the editor of the journal "Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington", that published Stephen Meyer's article "The Origin of Biological Information and the Higher Taxonomic Categories".

Following this publication, there were persistent rumours that Sternberg had been treated in an intimidatory way by his colleagues - rumours that were played down by Panda's Thumb. However, Sternberg requested an investigation by the US Office of Special Counsel (OSC).

David Klinghoffer, in the National Review, has written a report on the preliminary findings of the OSC. There is also a report in the Washington Times. See also comments on Telic Thoughts, and here.

Sternberg's own account of the facts from his perspective can be found here.
