    It always irks me when someone is willing to call something “sophistry” without feeling the need to actually present a real counter-argument. I’m still waiting to get the book for Christmas, but I assume that the headache argument is along the lines of pointing out that there’s something deeply inconsistent with refusing to pay 1$ to prevent a 1-in-a-billion chance of death, paying 1$ to cure a headache, but not paying a life to cure a billion headaches.

    Maybe there is a good answer to that seemingly inconsistency, but it DEMANDS a good answer, not a flip refutation that boils down into merely a restatement of one of the prongs of the original inconsistency (i.e. the presumed idea that no one would kill anyone for any price whatsoever)

    Getting a copy for Xmas. Surprised that none of the L.A. libraries have picked this one up.
    And while your argument against libraries in Fair Play is exactly the reason it’s a good library book to me, this one definitely sounds like a keeper.
