Perfectly understandable, and true, to an extent, but it seems to me (and
not wishing to be rude to anyone on this list), that seems to be a problem
that a lot of the anti-biotech lobby has. The pro-biotech people aren't the
only culprits, not just from this list, but many other areas.
Also, if Rick Roush is one of a complementary pair, who's the other person?
