The former chairman of Bush's Council of Economic Advisers (N. Gregory Mankiw) found a 2.5 1.5 year old review I did for one of his textbooks. And posted a link to it this morning.

I've had authors do this before, but none with quite his visibility. So as of 3:46 p.m., my site has had visitors to equal my entire last six months of traffic.

I mentioned the stats because yesterday was the anniversary of putting in a stats tracker for the site, so I posted a summary of top 10 reviews. His book was number 1 in overall views, but #6 or so when averaged out over the time posted. I think that posting is what triggered him finding the review. Anyway, now that set of posted stats is pretty much completely wrong now. Not that I'm complaining.

Man, you are just starting shit wherever you go with this "book review" thing.

I'm so proud to know you.

Well, no drama in this case.

Apparently he liked my masturbation.
