Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From the first diary you link:
In print, Krugman is a master. But he's not suited for the television age. He stammers. A man of fairly short stature to begin with, he slouches in his chair, like he's taking up as little space as possible. He allows people to talk over him and interrupt him to get in their little bon mots and sidetrack him from his reasoned arguments. Most damningly, he has trouble making eye contact, and often looks away and down at the table when he speaks, which could give the impression that he's dishonest.
Hey, I stammer too. When I was a graduate student in California I started picking up cues in other people's speech that they stammered (or had in the past).
