Draft of the Discussion by David Wolitzky (both in short and long version)

[A note by Morris Eagle and David Wolitzky: "We took issue with Hoffman's JAPA paper and are in the process of collaborating on a critique of it to send to JAPA. We are posting drafts of what we have written thus far. Eagle's draft is a point-by-point critique of Hoffman's paper. Wolitzky's draft incorporates several of Eagle's points, adds others, and provides a more general discussion of the issues involved. We hope you will help us sharpen the points we make and add others. On the assumption that you will read the material in advance, we will present only a very brief summary of it at the meeting so as to have ample time for discussion, following Jeremy Safran's discussion of our papers."]
