I got home a bit early from Bhutan, am home now, and will go into
work tomorrow morning for a couple of days. Let's talk at that time.
I admit to getting a bit tired of the sniping and misunderstanding
that seems to be flowing these days about dendro. That is the reason
for my somewhat intemperate remarks today to Rod Savage on the Forum,
who feels wrongly impugned now. He feels that my remarks were
unfairly personal, while his were not by his standards. So, trying to
throw dendro in the rubbish heap of bogus science (as he clearly
described it) is not personal. Yeah, right! I hope that you will
weigh in with at least a comment on his grossly unfair sweeping
condemnation of dendro.
