How do you know Leach et al. 'ignored' Maynard and Hodge? Perhaps
they examined it and found it wanting and not worth including. Perhaps
they noted (unlike you, James) that M&H's findings were over 20 y old and
had been superceded by more recent findings.
Tell us, James, what are your academic credentials to persist in
spouting off about all of this?
