Dear David --

Of course Gilder's a coward and a baby, he always has been. All you have
to do is look at his sniveling anti-feminist work from the mid-70s --
"none of these independent women want to date a regular guy like me, boo
hoo" -- and then his effete bullying of the poor in Wealth and Capitalism
from the early '80s, a textbook example of comforting the comfortable and
afflicting the afflicted. Waah, indeed.
