I couldn't quite get into this article; I think it dove too deep into Loftus's personal life and didn't divide her scientific influence from her personal one. I know that's kind of the point, to show that maybe her life influenced her scientific findings and what that implies for the cases she testified in, but I just couldn't pick apart the pieces to take away something important. I'm sure psychologists who studied Loftus will find this article interesting, but for others I think it just lands a little out in left field.
