Abstract

I am grateful for the detailed comments on my essay provided by Reanne Frank (2008), and Derek Exner and Jay Cohn (2008). Although Frank questions the potential benefit of my critiques, I nonetheless find her concerns and proposals to be quite persuasive. In future work, I hope to be more attentive to these recommendations, especially the suggestion to provide detailed re-analysis whenever data are available. While I would welcome the opportunity to discuss her essay in greater detail, I feel the need to use the limited space afforded to this rejoinder to address the more substantial disagreements found in the commentary by Exner and Cohn.
