A third and I pray final post on Rudy Giuliani's prostate. David Gratzer, the doctor who provided Giuliani with his disputed numbers on cancer survival rates in the US and Britain--numbers which provoked an assault from Paul Krugman and others, and a characteristically calm and judicious response from this desk--has posted his reply at City Journal (an excellent publication, by the way). He's not backing down, which I think is a mistake. Nothing he says makes me wish to revise my posts one and two.
The US is particularly miserable at putting aside money for the future. Should we blame our paychecks or our psychology?
