Check yoself before you wreck yoself, Canada

TPM has an update on the story Alec mentioned earlier. GSB Professor Austan Goolsbee first denied to the New York Observer having contacted the Canadian Consulate about NAFTA, then declined to confirm or deny having contact the Consulate to ABC News.I would like to make this very clear to Canada TV: NO ONE comes into our house and knocks us around. Austan Goolsbee may have talked to your government about Obama's NAFTA rhetoric. He may not have. It doesn't really matter, honestly.And in closing, some words of wisdom from the Goolz (from his June, 2000 GSB commencement address):

"...So get out there and make it happen. I would say 'be yourself,' but for some people 'be yourself' is about the worst advice you can give. So instead I will tell you this: Never forget where you came from and never commit the sunk cost fallacy.
