Re: st: Statalist style
Actually, note that Stata was in California (CRC was the
name of the company then, but the product was still
Stata) before moving to Texas; of course, maybe this is
just another example of Stiglers law (I don't remember
the exact wording here) that says that things in
statistics are named after the second person to discover
them (rather than the first person).
