There are about half a dozen "ifs" in his statement.

One of his bigger assumptions was that the ages were already clustered in the 14-19 category. They were not.

Perhaps he will return and address the fact that some of his assumptions were incorrect. He may end up at the same place or he may not.
Perhaps you'll also admit that a reasonable person can look at the ProPublica report and honestly think it's decent data -- not conclusive by any means, but reasonable to consider when looking at the entire picture. And that your dismissal of the data was highly overstated.

Or would that be too dangerous for you?
