Last month, a professor of economics at the University of California, Davis made some headlines by basically asserting that there is no American dream. It's a myth. He crunched the numbers, supposedly disproving it. Hmm. My dad used to always say, "Did you ever hear about the statistician who drowned in a river, the average depth of which was 6 inches?"
