That's too bad, but hopefully you will be inspired sometime in the future. If it is a critique it's certainly not the kind Krugman habitually lays on people with whom he disagrees.

What would you say if the person recommending immigration policy hated immigrants
I don't care how they feel about immigrants of they can solve the extant problems. Besides just because Kleinman recognizes that drug addicts like to get high doesn't mean he has contempt for them.

Have you ever heard George Carlin or Robin Williams talk about addicts? I doubt they have contempt, but rather are very familiar with the personality.
