RadioFor those of you that thought I had fallen off the earth, let me assure you that the gravitational field is still in good working order.

I have been busy teaching probability and statistics (in case you didn’t know, I have a Ph.D. in mathematics) and representing some clients in complicated and messy litigation.  Now that I have a bit of breathing room, I’m back to blogging.

A number of you from around the country have sent me emails about my posts.  Thank you for your kind words.  If there is a topic you’d like me to write about, send me an email at  As long as the subject isn’t too inflammatory, I’ll give it a post.

Of course, one has to be careful nowadays given the vigorous stamping out of free speech on college campuses.  See, e.g., Kevin D. Williamson’s article on the new campus fascism; A. Barton Hinkle’s article on book banning; and Anthony Watts’ article and Tim Graham’s article for book burning fun.

I was recently interviewed by Rick Liuag on the radio station KCAA, and thought you might enjoy what I had to say.  Here’s the recording (double-click to listen):


Some people have faces that are ideal for radio.  My wife assures me that I’m not one of them.  In fact, I was once on Jeopardy, so Alex Trebeck didn’t think I was a radio-face-only type.

The next posts will be about bankruptcy and tax debt resolution.
