Last time we checked in with Paul Krugman he was threatening The Economist with his right hook: turns out he--understandably--doesn't take kindly to being called "crude." Now, though, the Princeton professor and New York Times columnist has put out a general notice: no, he will not respond to x piece of criticism of his work that reader y may have found. Says Krugman to the readers in question:
Um, no. Do you have any idea how many articles there are out there attacking me? I literally don't have the time to respond to them all, or even to differentiate between the usual sliming and actually interesting critiques.
