Gelman and Shalizi on Bayes and Induction

http://afinetheorem.wordpress.com/2010/06/27/philosophy-and-the-practice-of-bayesian-statistics-a-gelman-c-shalizi-2010/

How they managed to write this with only passing reference to Jaynes I have no idea. I’ve only skimmed it, my only concrete criticism at this point is that they talk about model-checking and don’t (afaik) seem to see that this can be cast as Bayesian updating.
