I guess I'm surprised that you seem surprised. Universities are like
courts of law--the facts are secondary to the political position. This
is especially true at universities with an especially strong bias.

Please, join me in finding out who sponsored the "Our Poisoned Planet"
conference about DU at Portland State last week .. Dennis Kyne leads off
the TruthOut video that can be found at ... this hardly seems to be what
a university should be doing, spreading disinformation.. you would
wonder if they would sponsor a Holocaust Denial Seminar or perhaps a
little course in how to burn a cross by the KKK.  Kyne and his ilk, the
charlatans of the anti-DU crusade are in the same category.

Truthout Video (I have only seen the opening couple of minutes in which
Kyne indicates that he wants to "teach" all 300 million Americans about
the horrors of DU .. teach is hardly something he is qualified to do ..
He has parlayed his Expert Field Medical Badge into being in the anti-DU
limelight ..

After viewing the video share your thoughts about contacting Dr. Fasy to
start developing our scientific data base.

Should we contact Dr. Thomas Fasy, Associate Professor of Pathology at
Mount Sinai Hosp. to try and begin to develop our informational data
base on DU?  

(I presume Fasy, who learned about DU when he visited Iraq as a Peace
Activist when it was still ruled by Saddam also spoke at this conference
.. he is first of all a confirmed peace activist and secondarily a
physician, far as I know he has no particular expertise beyond what
Saddam allowed him to see .. somehow, a pathologist does not seem to be
the person who determines what causes a birth defect or that certain
types of birth defects are atypical of the fetuses parents having been
exposed to DU) .. I wrote his Department head some months ago; the
Department head was not willing to say much.  I just wrote their public
affairs office with some more pointed questions.)
