         James, you are dumber than dumb.

         I was quoting Alexandra Miller, whose work you have been waving 
around as though it is the Holy Grail of anti-DU fanatics everywhere.  If 
you have a problem with the way Miller talks about "uranium of any type," 
why don't you call her or send her an e-mail?

         Less than a month ago you were demanding that we all bow and 
scrape before some source material from 1954.  Now, you are loftily 
proclaiming that something from the 1980s isn't worth the paper it's 
written on.  Your whiny excuse that BEIR IV "was in the 80s" reminds me of
