I looked at some of Lott’s anonymous reviews of other people’s books on Amazon.com in this posting. Yesterday I found that Washingtonian had made a five-star review of More guns, Less Crime, just like Mary Rosh did. Today we are going to see just how many other five-star review.Lott gave his book. To understand what…

Blogs on Washingtonian

Links from Chris Mooney, Atrios and Buzzflash. Ted Barlow wonders what John Lott has to do to get fired from the AEI. “Sadly, No!” helpfully suggests that with two more personalities Lott can start a boy band. John Quiggin asks “why so few individual conservatives and libertarians have dumped Lott”. Kevin Drum says that Lott…

Well, Lott has posted an Amazon.com customer review of Joyce Lee Malcolm’s Guns and Violence: The English Experience : A sweeping history of the English crime…

Everyone’s talking about Mary

Everyone has something about Lott’s latest untruth that I mentioned yesterday. Mark Kleiman says Isn’t there anyone in the management of the American Enterprise Institute with a modicum of institutional self-respect? Brad Delong replies: If they had any institutional self-respect, why would they keep James “Dow 36,000″ Glassman and Kevin “We’re Not Joking: Dow 36,000…

John Lott’s online book reviews

This is an annotated list of John Lott’s on line reviews at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.

Lott was on MSNBC’s Buchanan & Press on May 26. From the transcript: PRESS: After that book came out, there was a person who showed up on the Internet by the name of Mary Rosh, who said you were the best professor she ever had in college. She praised the book in her review on…

The Mystery of Mary Rosh

Julian Sanchez has an article in the May issue of Reason on the role blogs played in the investigation of the Lott affair.

A gun control group has set up a “fan” site for Mary Rosh.
