RE: st: Grid Search in a Log Plus Constant Model
The key principle is that -glm- (or GLMs) is (or
are) based on assumptions about the mean response, not the
response data. Thus some of the data can be

and family chosen are good for the problem and the data
is naturally an important question, but one that is empirical,
not theoretical. Or so I understand the matter.
