I find it curious, that a so called "scholar" from a "think tank" can write something so unbelievably, simplistically, innacurate and uninformed, and have it printed purely on the basis of his elite connections. Has Mr. Glassman a degree in a lactation-related field? Has he studied health science, perhaps? Is he an HIV expert? Did he do a stint in the Peace Corps and return to dedicate his life to the concerns of the poor and hungry?
No, this is a man who a colleague admiringly described as "know(ing) how to talk like an expert on something even if he doesn't know anything about it" according to the Washington Monthly. This is a man who writes PR for corporate clients. Yes, it takes a special kind of moral code to cry great big alligator tears for poor babies in the third world even while trying to sell them something they don't even need.
