Bully for him 

Frequent reader and commenter Stephen Frank takes to task the letter by Mary Clifford on the anonymous posting at the Times (as discussed here.) Read the whole thing: I don't ruin that by giving you his ending as the money quote.
I wonder about the wisdom of having the university take on the Times. There is a symbiotic relationship between the two of us � we need them and they need us. There are limitations in taking on those who buy ink by the barrel. They are going to have the last word. More to the point I agree with President Lyndon Johnson who said taking on the media is like pissing against the wind.

On a cold February day in Minnesota I have better things to do.
Well done, good professor. Well done.
