Malcolm Gladwell's opinion of me

"Dealbreaker: A Wall Street Tabloid" has a funny post on my feud with Malcolm Gladwell and what Malcolm said about me in a bar.

The pattern underlying whom I choose to repeatedly pick on -- Gladwell, Steven Levitt, Michael Barone, Jared Diamond, etc. -- is that they each have the potential to do really good work. So, my ragging on them is a compliment, but it's also only natural that they take it personally.

The funny thing is that everybody gets what he wants: I'm right and they're rich. So, what's not to like?
