I Was Wrong: Avik Roy was Right
But what convinced me was the comment on my post by “Handle.” I probably can’t say it better than Handle and so I won’t try. The key word that I somehow missed was the government official’s word “balance.” Read Handle’s whole comment. It’s worth it.
I could go on and on and try to excuse myself or say that Avik didn’t say it clearly enough, blah, blah, blah, but why bother? I missed that key word, plain and simple.
My apologies to Avik.
