    Many years ago, Robert Parker held an annual Xmas party for 20+ of his wine-loving friends/acquaintances. I met Charles Murray at a couple of those. I didn’t have an opportunity to discuss The Bell Curve but, having a Ph.D. in Psychology, and having administered many WISC and WAIS intelligence tests, I am convinced that they were racially biased. Whether revised editions are better balanced I am unable to say because I left the field 15+ years ago but I would have enjoyed the opportunity for a discussion with Dr. Murray back then.
