hmm. Including Leiter, this is the thrid time this comic has been recommended to me. It shows up as a broken pic for me, anyone else have that problem?

At any rate, even if I can't see the comic, I'm not so certain about what the pre-punishment problem shows.

If you're really interested, there's a supergreat discussion on this about Smilansky's recent Analysis paper on the topic on GFP:

Complete with responses from Smilansky himself.
