Thanks!  In my view, this is an extreme case.  I didn't expect to have to endure political insults and needling on RADSAF.  I consider us a family of professionals, and I don't like seeing my colleagues insulted and instigated into unnecessary conflict.  List-owner please help.

If you have any problems with Freanz's posting I suggest you correspond with him, or use the delete key.  Only the List-owner can refuse to let individuals post on this list server.

We have been down this road before, and will probably come up again.  Censorship is only imposed in extreme cases.  I hope even Sandy would agree.

"We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent or omniscient - that we are only 6 percent of the world's population; that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind; that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity; and therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem."
