How to Reach Closure after Bloodstained-Car Wreck-Level Trauma of Debating Sachs?

In an attempt to wrap up the endless back and forth on the Huffington Post (my latest post went up today), here is a cheat sheet of how the debate proceeded. Since this was produced by one of the debate participants, it might be a trifle one-sided:

Huffington Post Sensational attack Defense against previous round of attack Valid point
Sachs 5/24: Aid Ironies E got aid himself but opposes it for dying babies None Immunization works
Easterly 5/25: Why Critics are Better for Foreign Aid than Apologists S as bad as Cheney intimidating opponents with smears S previously quoted E accurately as in favor of what S now says E is against Aid needs critics to make sure it reaches poor people
Sachs 5/27: Moyo’s Confused Attack on Aid for Africa Aid critics don’t understand geography of Africa S: Don’t worry, I’m smearing Moyo too Malaria is bad
Easterly 5/29: Geography Lessons: Correcting Sachs on African Economic Development Convoluted S geography theory uses a lot of Ifs, Buts and Excepts to fit Africa, ignores bad government E: Bad government is more important than bad geography to explain Africa’s poverty Aid should not go to bad governments
Sachs 6/1: No Need to Oversimplify Poverty E has “pre-scientific” mono-causal, bad government explanation for poverty S admits Zimbabwe has a bad government; geography theory data mining is justified in “complex systems” Poverty is complicated
Easterly 6/2: Astrology, Despotism, and Africa S doesn’t understand data mining, which makes geography analysis = astrology; S calls despotisms besides Zim “potentially well governed” E: All science tests one thing at a time, such as bad government, not equivalent to believing only one thing matters People adapt to geography thru trade & technology (like bed nets from S!) & migration
