Dunning’s on another planet

By From page A6 | November 15, 2013

Well, well, well … looks like Dunning laid a goose egg in his prognostication of the Stanford/Oregon game. Here is what he said in the Oct. 31 edition of The Enterprise:

“This week’s picks are as follows:

“OREGON over STANFORD (Nov. 7) … yes, this game isn’t until next Thursday, but neither team plays this weekend in order to be fully prepared for this long-anticipated showdown. There have been only a handful of teams in college football history as deep and talented as these Ducks. Stanford is capable, but Oregon is on another planet.”

Another planet is right and that is where Dunning must have been when he make this boneheaded call.

And after you hear what I am going to tell you about what folks at the American Public Health Association annual meeting in Boston this past week had to say about Dunning and his chatter on fluoride and the good people supporting it, you’ll know that Dunning has been inhabiting another planet! Be it Venus or be it Mars, I wonder?
