So, uhm, I did this.
Sure, you can claim that there's no causality. You'd be totally wrong, but you could claim it. I mean, really, some random guy screams at Sunil Gulati from 20 feet above, next to a loud, raucus stadium full of Salvadorenos, and six weeks later Gulati does exactly what the random guy yelled at him to do? Incontrovertible, and you're just a dilettante if you can't see the inexorable logic behind this theory.
I hate dancing on a guy's grave when he's become unemployed, but...oh...wait...never mind. Yeah, never mind.
