MORE LOTT….Sigh. Another op-ed from John Lott in the LA Times today. I wish they had the self respect to quit publishing his stuff.
UPDATE: I sometimes forget that not everyone has followed the John Lott saga. Nickel version: the guy’s been caught in so many brazen attempts at dishonesty that he’s forfeited the right to be taken seriously. I have no idea whether today’s op-ed presents his data fairly or not, but that’s the whole point: I have no idea, and neither does the Times. They shouldn’t be willing to publish stuff by a guy with his record.
For more details, you can search for “John Lott” on this site or, for the definitive version, go read Tim Lambert.
