Noah Smith notes that I posted a link to the Conley-Dupor paper without noting any of its flaws.

This is entirely true, but doesn’t suggest, as some might suspect, that I supported the paper. In truth,  the questions Arnold Kling when raised when referring to the paper made me think of something and I wanted to make a quick comment.

It was also late at night, post-Ambien and by the time I hit post I had forgotten what I had intended to write about in the first place. This is how blogging is often done.
