Better late than never
Your humble author has been called out, to wit:
Sieglinde comes out of hiding, announcing herself with a new design and a tag. The game: pick up the nearest book, turn to page 123, and copy the 5th, 6th and 7th sentences. The result:
"Thus the R2 also can be expressed as one minus the ratio of the sum of squared residuals to the total sum of squares: R2 = 1 - (SSR/TSS). Finally, the R2 of the regression of Y on the single regressor X is the square of the correlation coefficient between Y and X. The R2 ranges between zero and one."
That's from a swell read entitled Introduction to Econometrics, by James H. Stock and Mark W. Watson.
I tag Maury, Chalkenteros, and Mr. Patrick J. Smith.
A week later when Sebastian came up for trial he was fined ten pounds. The newspapers reported it with painful prominence, one of them under the ironic headline: "Marquis's Son Unused to Wine." The magistrate said that it was only though the prompt action of the police that he was not up on a grave charge..."It is purely by good fortune that you do not bear the responsibility of a serious accident..."
From? Waugh's incomparable Brideshead Revisited. Concerning? One of the incidents that prompts Lord Sebastian Flyte's decline into (?) his own special brand holiness. I really should post my thoughts on Brideshead; I confess: I have spent more time with T.S. Eliot, Gore Vidal, and the plethora of social historians that make up my coursework these days than with Mr. Waugh.
Alex, though, should thank his lucky stars that my abstract algebra book is on the other side of my room.
