19. let me rephrase it
Edited on Wed Aug-17-05 01:22 PM by OnTheOtherHand
I don't see how anyone can participate usefully in serious debate while ignoring basic facts. That is, in fact, the general principle that I intended to enunciate -- I didn't intend to hand-tailor it to one person alone.

I have a real problem here, if I attempt to explain TIA's arguments to a colleague. The colleague might say, "What does TIA say about false recall?" And I will say... what? that he calls me a crypto-Republican?

Please understand that this is a real problem whether I mention it or not. Anyone can overlook a pertinent argument, or disagree about its importance, but it ought to be engaged.

EDIT: That said, I am happy to move on.
