         What is your CV?

         Knock it off with the self-serving stuff about your parents, and 
answer the question about where you were born.

         You can also knock off your attacks on Drs. Cherry and Johnson; 
and on Ron Kathren.  Don't you ever get tired of vilifying your 
opponents?  Have you no sense of decency at long last?

         Yesterday you were moaning and groaning about me and uranyl 
acetate and uranyl oxide.  You said I "tried to suggest that uranyl acetate 
was different from the largest of the uranium combustion products, uranyl 
oxide, . . .."  Look at the first quote from the Miller and McClain paper 
and you will find they are talking about uranyl *chloride*.
