David Harsanyi: Have Lots of Children; It's Good for the Planet

   This is a truly awful article. I mean: use-it-in-your-critical-thinking-class level awful.
   Actually, I sometimes wonder whether that's a big mistake that we make in teaching CT classes...I sometimes find myself picking really, really terrible articles for students to analyze. Do that too much, and they don't get the requisite practice trying to figure out stuff that's closer to the mean.
   Articles like this do constitute good examples, though, in that they contain such egregious errors, and those errors are typical in certain respects.
