I am fond of your explanation on "bias" (I've read it a couple of
times now). Would you consider writing it up somewhere? There are so
many common misconceptions around this topic that such a document
would be a valuable resource. I saw the term again earlier today in
some of Stein's papers (Estimation with Quadratic Loss and Estimation
of the Mean of a Multivariate Normal Distribution), and was reminded
of this thread.
