Certainly no intention on my part to throw a monkey wrench on this relationship (which has blossomed on the Economics board, of all boards). You go on your merry ways gentlemen, I'm not one to spoil your fun.

Rick, if you're trying to find arsenic for your syphilis, you may have come to the right place (ok, ok... penicillin). Being labeled a Kantian is a curse among objectivists, but it doesn't bar therapy. Should I monicker you 'Kid Kant' in return for your 'Mr. C'? 'Kid Kant' has a nice ring to it.
