It appears that my posting this morning was very sarcastic. I apologize to Jim and anyone else who read it.
Actually, I was serious: I thought getting mentioned in the WSJ was a very positive event for the sales of the book and the discussions that it was presumably meant to inspire.
However, that being said, I also must also confess that I did not have time to read the op-ed piece until later, quite frankly until after seing the other posts on this site. Upon reading it (and them), it seems like my comments were sarcastic and pusilanimous. For this and not reading the article before I commented I apologize.
