For whom is this question? Presumably Linda Seltzer,
since specificity or, more pointedly,
quantification/verification of the cited comparison of
peoples' talent and ability was exactly the point of
my response. My verbose way of saying ... "how the
heck do you know that?" It's also another way of
saying that in 2005 this tenor of argument on this
issue is tedious, tenuous and tragically tired. I
would have added "non-productive" but it didn't quite
fit into my alliteration. :>)
