Seriously. I have to be a "noted local economist" to blog my opinion on this bailout economy? Do I also have to be a criminologist to blog my opinion on crime? Do I have to be a Mayor to comment on the Mayor's office? Or what about a chef or food critic to recommend a restaurant on Enclave? Maybe I need to go to law school to express my views on public policy.
Speaking of law, unless I am mistaken, Roger is a lawyer, which by his own logic doesn't make him a "noted local economist," even though he does exactly the same thing he's criticizing me for: blog on economics.
Seriously. Roger looks here like he can't produce a coherent defense himself on why I am wrong in linking a view with which he disagrees. So, he attacks the fact that I'm not an economist, something I've never claimed or pretended to be; even as I have opinions on the economy, just like Roger does.
