5. High rejection rates means more intense competition to get in, so means greater selection for whatever traits get you in. Unfortunately truth-seeking and honesty aren’t among them, not at the top anyway — otherwise the key information wouldn’t be buried in a mail-order supplement to the online supplement to the footnotes, and authors would happily share all their data on request.

2. Sophomoric and lame poetry, sorry.

A journal which prides itself on rejecting
19 articles for every one it publishes
is supposed to honor one of those
criteria which attest to high standards. I
would be more impressed if its articles
generally stood the test of time for at least
19 years.

Someone should introduce Freedman to Robin Hanson.

I concur that the poem was terrible.
