Hey there, Don Burleson has changed his evil ways :). He has completely
accepted Cary's and Anjo's arguments. There is no "Burleson school" as
opposed to "Millsap's school". I have several of Don Burleson's books (most
notably, the "Statspack book") and I find him to be technically very strong and perfectly reasonable
author. Furthermore, he has a publishing company (called "Rampant Books")
which is publishing some of the most cutting edge books in the field .
Don Burleson really is a good guy, despite the fact that I've never met
him in person.
None of us is as dumb as all of us.
