I might have gone with Dominating Your Data, but I can count on you to take it to the next level, lol.

I would like to take a course on how to do correlations myself. I think you make a good point that we must go beyond hiring it out to understanding what we are hiring out.

I am great at the simple stuff, but need to get more education for the more complicated stuff. My current obsession, the Pearson Product Moment Coefficient, want to learn how that works.

Also, want your opinion on the Weighted Media Cost paper by Angela, Bruce and Brad.

Hi Kami, nice to hear from you. Glad you enjoyed the article -- and Katie's ever-pushing-the-envelope title. Please note our article on SeaWorld's recent travails (http://kdpaine.blogs.com/themeasurementstandard/2010/02/can-seaworlds-reputation-be-saved.html); their strong reputation is in large part thanks to your ground-breaking coaster work with them. --Bill Paarlberg, Editor, The Measurement Standard

Thanks, Katie. Good stuff!

The argument is unimpeachable, but I absolutely cringe at the expression "Make X your bitch," no matter who uses it about what. I'm nowhere near the kind of prickly feminist I was in my 20s, but there's just too much ghetto violence and misogyny in this one. If you're after BDSM terminology, the usual words are "sub," "toy," and "pet." Even "slave," but not "bitch."
