MICHENER AND WRIGHT (2006C) REPEAT THEIR AD HOMINEM attack on me—repeat in that they offer little that is new or original. They simply rearrange and re-cloth their prior material and present it again.1 Much of their rearrangement consists of rhetorical games—clever attempts to mislead the reader without being de jure dishonest.

Michener and Wright’s attacks yet again for what they really are.

This article is a response to Farley Grubb’s Noisy Evasions on Colonial Money: A Rejoinder by Ronald W. Michener and Robert E. Wright (EJW, May 2006).
