I WANT TO BEGIN BY OFFERING MY SINCERE THANKS TO Andrew Kashdan and Daniel Klein for their spirited critique of my work. They have read me carefully and raised many important questions.

This article is a response to Assume the Positional: Comment on Robert Frank by Andrew Kashdan and Daniel B. Klein (EJW, September 2006).
