YOU VOTED in droves, and it was close too, with four people at various stages appearing to be out. It’s time to say goodbye to Maryanne Garry. With two psychologists in contention you decided that psychologists are a bit like teapots, you can have too many, and so one had to go. Share on Facebook+1 [...]
