The James Russell Lowell Memorial Circle Jerk
Derek Lowe turns 39 in 2 weeks. He's 6-1 for the Indians, and threw a shutout today. The Derek Lowe that appears often in the Atlantic is a drug researcher with a successful drug development record of 0/life. While Megan McArdle is off producing a book-shaped object, various losers are filling in. On the whole, they are less inept propagandists than Blenderella, but are being widely ignored. Which is, of course, what they deserve. So why am I dragging them into the light for the benefit of the dozens of you who will look at this for the pictures? Manzi/Rossman convergence. The 2 of them have been regaling us with some utterly basic observations on inference, livened only by their nominating each other for Nobels for material any undergraduate should find routine. something from 2010 & something from earlier in 2010. After over 2 years, he still had crappy labels on his axes, and hadn't thought them through.
