Amby Burfoot, Head Still in Sand

I've posted about Amby's views on barefoot running before, but today saw this exchange on Twitter:

exerscience (Amby Burfoot): "Nothing like a NYTimes article on Barefootin' to set off a landslide of Comments. Still all anecdote on key issues."

BornToRunChris (Chris McDougall): "@exerscience Gotcha. It's ok that zero science supports cushioned shoes, yet 2 million years of bare feet are sniffed at as 'anecdotal.'"

Keep your head in the sand, Amby.  The folks that count get it.
