I'll take it.

Saw Berek off to Princeton this weekend and, in the process I received two things of note: these (from Tokyo) and the graded/commented version of this. Both have been deeply fulfilling - the Haribo because they are delicious, the paper so that I could discover more precisely what Dr. Carson thought of my work other than the posted "B" I received. The paper is commented throughout, but the summary comment is pretty much a tell all:
You have the same strengths and weaknesses of Leithart - a good prose style and a very bright mind that dissipates good judgment in fixating on one rather narrow slant that ends up in an unconvincing reductionism.
There ye be.
