To A Columnist (On Not Seeing One On The Op-Ed Page)

Daniel Okrent (penultimate sentence on this page):
If [Paul Krugman] replies to this statement, as I imagine he will, I’ll let him have what he always insists on keeping for himself: the last word.
Herr Doktorprofessor Paul Von Krugman (first sentence of his response to Dan Okrent's response on this same page):
Just one last word.
No wonder Herr Doktorprofessor is "on vacation." Maybe he will have some time during his "vacation" for a little poetry reading. Perhaps some Robert Burns:

O wad some Power the giftie gie us

To see oursels as ithers see us!

It wad frae mony a blunder free us,

An' foolish notion:

What airs in dress an' gait wad lea'e us,

An' ev'n devotion!
