It shows that your New York Times article is just another set of data in a field which produces conflicting and contradictory data constantly. Why believe one over the other? usually because it says what the proponent wants it to say.

: Do you have a memory problem? Or are you like Ronald Reagan---confident that your repeated falsehoods will eventually stick?

No, i remembered your NY article and your own criticism of other data confirms the problem outlined above. Which is accurate? You have to pull apart *every* study's methodology, and you will find that each is with weaknesses.

: You're incapable of admitting that your caught, aren't you?

I think this says more about you intent to catch, than any attempt not to be caught - however, I appreciate the criticism of the source.
