Ahem. Well, I suppose after our pieties (I'm sure as sincere in your case as in mine) a propos of the death of John Kenneth Galbraith earlier this year, it's only fair, eh.

One of Friedman's more memorable quips was as to JKG's prodigiously inelegant skiing technique. "How long have you been skiing, Ken? About as long as you've been doing economics, obviously..."

(Galbraith of course quoted Friedman with vast amusement.)
