Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
During today's class debate, one side evidently delegated to one pleasant fellow the task of making all the fallacious or weak arguments. Highlights included a post-hoc-ergo-propter-hoc and a fuzzy-math attack on not just the other side's statistics, but on statistical indices in general. I slept and read the classified ads.
In more pleasant news, one potential employer has sent me a request for another writing sample. I'm working on it and crossing my fingers.
