We read, with great disappointment, about Jonah Lehrer's resignation from the The New Yorker yesterday after admitting that he published fabricated Bob Dylan quotes in his best-selling book, “Imagine."  Jonah was the very first guest on Word of Mouth’s pilot broadcast in March of 2008. His book "Proust Was a Neuroscientist," was on the best-seller list and praised for turning complex scientific theories into accessible prose. Jonah was then 26, dubbed the next big thing and living in Concord.
