This is fan mail to the Freakonomics folks:
Recently I borrowed a copy of your book from a friend (so basically pure benefit for me) and I must say I am impressed. I am well-read, reading on average four books per week. With that said, I love SuperFreakonomics. In fact I enjoyed them so much and your unorthodox approach, that I award both authors the rank of Honored Elder. To quantify, this here is my own ranking of authorial/analytical skill:
Ruler of the Aegis
Lord of the Manor
Kim Jong Il
Why is Alan Greenspan so bad? Because he created an interest environment that only encouraged bad behavior like: sub-primes, no savings, etc. Anyway, great book. If I am ever in power, you will hear from me.
