I have to give credit where credit is due…

I have to give credit where credit is due. I was at dinner with two people who said that Steve Pinker stood by them at a difficult moment, when it was very unpopular to do so, when other academics abandoned them. And he went out of his way to do so. Very honorable. So one should respect the man, without setting aside the statistical problems, or perhaps look at the statistical problems as good news: here is a man worth fighting against.
