I woke up this morning with the realization that I had made a mistake. The mistake I made was in closing comments on my recent defense of Miles Mathis. I knew that it might give the impression that I, too, am afraid of criticism and counter-arguments, whereas in fact I simply didn’t want to be bothered swatting flies. But the realization I had this morning is that the arguments on the other side are so weak that they defeat themselves. I don’t even need to respond. So I’m taking this as an exercise in self-control. Maybe it will even help me kick-start my diet. I’ve opened comments — have at it! But keep it civil.
