Dear RADSAFE Moderator, 
What will it take to warrant removal of the below poster from this  board? 
First he refuses to identify his true name to other board  members. Then he 
tried to compromise another RADSAFER's  employment, and now we see his wish 
for use of the criminal  justice system against yet another RADSAFER. 
The longer this abusive use of RADSAFE is allowed to continue, other  
RADSAFERs are going to be less inclined to participate.

That is not consistent with the translocation graph shown in  the
Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic Chemistry, 8th Edition,  English
translation (Springer-Verlag, 1982), Title U -- Uranium,  Supplemental
Volume A7 -- Biology, Section 3 -- Metabolism: Absorption,  page 305,
Figure 3-1, "Retention and translocation of inhaled uranyl  nitrate,"
from J.E. Ballou, R.A. Gies, and N.A. Wagman in BNWL-2500, Part  1, pp.
379-380 (1978.)

If I owe Bob Cherry an apology for not  knowing about genotoxicity when
he made statements to federal officials on  the health aspects of
uranium fume inhalation, or for getting his title  wrong, then I
apologize.  I remain of the opinion that a more  appropriate title
would involve a Quantico detainee number for decades  followed by
"Defendant" in a medical expense loss recovery class action  suit, and
I appreciate all the work the military does to defend my right  to
express such opinions.
