A slam at Paul Krugman, and his response

Some of my favorite reading this year and last has been the New York Times columns of economist Paul Krugman. I was astounded, then, when Daniel Okrent fired a rather mean parting shot at Krugman in his final column (May 22) as public editor for the Times.

Krugman naturally demanded particulars. You can find them here Public Editor's Web Journal , along with rebuttal.

It seems to me that Okrent was being picky and petty rather than constructive. What do you think?
