No, this is not about the never-ending debate about the attendance (for the record, I agree with those who say that the “official” number is phony – there's no way there's 13000 on the floor, it's got to be about 5000 max – but Dave's 78000 figure is too low).
I remember from the Observer recaps long ago that Meltzer kept predicting WM3 was going to flop, possibly licking his chops while doing so. I even recall that he kept doing it even as the tickets were moving briskly and it was clear it was going to draw a
big crowd. To your knowledge, has he publicly taken shit over that from readers, or has he offered a mea culpa about his questionable prognostication skills there?
No, and I've been emailing him every week since 1987 and he STILL won't answer me for some reason!
