Daniel Kuehn has posted a clarification of his position on his blog making it clear that his post was not intended as a defense of Steve Landsberg's position on the Sandra Fluke issue.

There is still an interesting argument about how modern readers seem to give more weight to counter-intuitive arguments than intuitive ones.  Landsberg's career seems to be based on this approach.  Bayesian thinking says that we should do the reverse -- and I think that it would be useful to the debate if we remembered such things.
