         Busby's CV and biography are available online.  If someone 
alludes to them or invokes them here, that's too bad for Busby.

         I once had someone on RADSAFE do a web search for me and ask 
me a question about myself based on something I did not know was 
online.  I'm not saying that to justify anyone's behavior.  It is an 
unfortunate fact that with the proliferation of the Internet a right 
to privacy has largely become a dead letter.
