You're a doctor of what, now?

There's a lot of talk around about scams, hoaxes and fraud, and how to avoid them. A lot, but not nearly enough, if you ask me. For instance, you take the case of—and get ready, you might not see this one coming—chiropractic.

What? Chiropractic is a scam?

So says magician James Randi, who received this message from one of his readers:
I do not believe I will ever practice chiropractic again, because I see no ethical way to practice. Spinal manipulation has limited uses at best and some forms of manipulation can be dangerous, cervical manipulation, for example. The problem is that I now have over $150,000 worth of non-dischargeable student loans and it looks like my credit is ruined for the rest of my life.
