Bill Powers's tale on 27 June about his letter to Science magazine.

From Phil Runkel.

        Now there is a full-blown example of the way the establishment
people protect themselves. They say that if you had anything important
to say, Bizzi and others would have said so. It did not occur to them,
apparently, to say that if Bizzi et alii had anything important to say,
_you_ would have said so. Bizzi et alii are the arbiters because they
stand in a ring of people citing one another. Please do not disturb.
