Landsburg Defends Economics vs. DeLong

Steven Landsburg steps to Mario's defense:
You’d never know it from DeLong’s selective summary, but Rizzo’s post is dense with interesting (if elementary) economics. ... Personally, I don’t mind tipping but I found a lot to chew on in Professor Rizzo’s post. DeLong, true to form, ignored the content and jeered like a third grade bully. Most sadly, whenever he indulges this habit, DeLong sacrifices a chance to teach a little economics. Fortunately, the web is a big place and there are plenty of alternatives for readers who care about ideas.
