81. No.1 with a FoxNews link!

You may have won some sort of prize.

Another UC Davis researcher who attended the press conference hoping to see scientific data linking gun show sales and crime was disappointed.

"None of that was presented," said Jesse Bengson.

Instead, he said he saw anecdotal inferences and personal opinion. He said you can't condemn flea markets for bad things that happen in them and that individuals are responsible for how guns are used.

Well, what a tasty and wholly irrelevant opinion that was!

Oooh, a grad student in nothing relevant at all:

But Wintemute defended his report saying it was not meant to be a scientific study. Instead, he said he wanted people to see what happens at gun shows to encourage a closer examination of gun policy.

Just love that loaded language. First he's "admitting" something he's never denied, now he's "defending" his report againt completely improper allegations.

It ain't his fault how the media portray it - and he isn't answerable for anyone else's imaginations about what the report is, or required to "admit" that it isn't that, or "defend" it against claims or insinuations that it is.

Anybody read the report yet?
