FROM EUGENE VOLOKH: The linked-to article is at New Study Reveals 89% Of Nation’s Food Stamps Squandered On Junk Food and a bunch of things don’t quite check out — the Malbeck Data Institute doesn’t seem to have a Web page, the author’s supposed books don’t show up on Amazon, and the quotes in the story have that made-up feel to them, if you know what I mean. In any case, I wanted to flag this just in case. — It’s quite possible I’ve been taken. It agreed with my internal prejudices and the fact that ebooks you give away for free always get terrible reviews!
