Gödel’s Loophole: Reply to Budiansky

I picked up a copy of Stephen Budiansky‘s new biography of Kurt Gödel — Journey to the Edge of Reason, W. W. Norton (2021) — by chance at a book store in Winter Park, Florida in June of 2021, and I was pleasantly surprised to find my work on “Gödel’s Loophole” cited on pages 234 & 327 of Budiansky’s beautiful book, where he retells the story of Gödel’s citizenship exam and his discovery of a logical contradiction in the U.S. Constitution. Although Budiansky devotes only one paragraph to my conjecture, he gets the general idea of my argument — and its Gödelian spirit — right! (For your reference, both the cover of Budiansky’s book and the relevant excerpt on p. 234 are pictured below.)
