Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

        Barry, like you I had no favorite but after the opening play from scrimmage, my hopes for seeing a good, close game worthy of my time were dampened. On the other hand, what did entertain me recently were the voluminous replies to last week’s article about the “idiots” who don’t bother to do anything about estate taxes – when they can.
