My friends at Power Line are very smart guys, but sometimes they miss the forest for the trees.
First, John Hinderaker links to something by Orson Scott Card and notes, "I'm not familiar with columnist Orson Scott Card." Of course Card isn't really a "newspaper columnist"--he's a pretty grand sci-fi writer and--most importantly--author of Ultimate Iron Man series 1 and 2. For shame, Hindrocket!
Then in a post today Paul Mirengoff analyzes the World Series by going through all sorts of fancy "numbers" and "metrics." He concludes that the Series is "too close to call."
What Mirengoff misses of course, is the only salient fact: The Phillies are from Philadelphia.
We know how this story ends.
