  1. If n=1 indicates the amount of data in use, that’s meaningful (if outrageous) for frequentist vs bayesian controversies. But as a poster for Science Day (science vs Washington know-nothings), it really should be n=0.

  2. Yes, n=0 would be better. When I wrote n=1, I was thinking of the favorite tool of the know-nothing, the anecdote. One record cold day, and anthropogenic global warming is denied. One celebrity’s claim of vaccine-induced autism, and vaccines are shunned. Of course, the singular of data isn’t anecdote, so maybe I should have written n<1.
