  18. Dalton says:

    No Regression

    Oh, fear predictions of men are failing
    These are methods we don’t know
    Linear regression now is spreading
    Galton declared it would be so

    I’m going where there’s no regression
    To a better land that’s free from error
    I’ll leave this world of linear least squares
    My home’s in heaven, I’m going there

    In this dark hour, midnight nearing
    The GLM time will come
    Non-Guassian errors will hurl terror
    And sweep lost millions to their doom

    I’m going where there’s no regression
    To a better land that’s free from error
    I’ll leave this world of linear least squares
    My home’s in heaven, I’m going there

    I’m going where there’s no regression
    To a better land that’s free from error
    I’ll leave this world of linear least squares
    My home’s in heaven, I’m going there

    There is still a chance to provide input on the title of the book! I thought it was nearly published!

    By the way, what is the status of the book?

    • Andrew says:

      Anon:

      Book is done; we’re just fixing typos, cleaning up the index, and adding a few homework problems. Realistically I think the title is set, but I thought it would be fun to consider alternatives. The physical book should be out in a few months, or however long it takes Cambridge University Press to do that sort of thing.
