Now, Where Does One Go to Get Their Reputation Back?

Now, where does Padgett go to get his reputation back? Certainly, not to the archaeo-bloggers and access journalists who are so quick to condemn but are so slow to exonerate. Indeed, despite their connections to Italian authorities, they have yet to so much as acknowlege this news.
