multivariable methods

A professor of mine once said that
Old, white men are prone to
transforming statistics into personal memorials.
Oh, but what these legends become.

I wonder if Wald haunts these halls,
slamming doors and stomping up and down
those narrow steps, a proper hissy fit,
when my students ask,
“Why can’t we just use a t-test?”
