         In the second link Salsman is harping on whether or not we 
on RADSAFE believe that uranium is a genotoxin.  He wrote:

"Again, do you believe that uranium is a genotoxin or not?  The 
literature is abundantly clear on the issue, and I wonder why people 
on this list get so upset about the question."

         First, I have asked Salsman at least twice to answer his own 
question and so far he has refused to do so.  In fact, the second 
time I asked him, he disappeared from RADSAFE for two or three 
months.  Perhaps he was "upset" about the question.

         Second, if there is literature on this, and if it is 
abundantly clear, why don't you cite some of it, James?

         Your line of "reasoning," James, is even more obscure than 
usual.  This thread begin with you posting a Reuters link about 
internal squabbling at the NRC, and you making some non-germane 
comments about the price of wind power.  What does any of this have 
to do with genotoxins?

         Do you have a fever, James?
