I wonder if Professor Robert George’s views on such issues as abortion, gay marriage, public-sector pension benefits, and the gold standard are informed by his presumed expertise in jurisprudence (Campus Notebook, Oct. 5, and letters, Nov. 16). If not, I wonder whether he nevertheless invokes his Princeton credentials when holding forth on them. On the last of those issues, at least, he might benefit greatly from sitting in on an introductory economics course, and perhaps one on the history of the 1930s.
