Dear Colleagues, I would not like to see any rules imposed that would tend to stifle debate. The recent interchange, apart from one or two ill-chosen phrases, has really been stimulating. I would be in favor of calling an amnesty on all ill-chosen words that may have been used up to this point and hope we can continue stimulating one another with ideas expressed in a way that is challenging, but not confrontational or personal. I know I learn a lot by being exposed to debates among experts. - Al ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Albert S.
