Re: suppression/repression bias - make a difference

Thanks for the site reference. I remember Sally, she worked for a
state/fed. agency as an environmental investigator. I don't know what
alliance she is referring to, but it could be of state employees, as a
number of them reported health problems from exposures to many sites
during the relevant time period. Their complaints were not recieved well
by the state, and the typical damage control group emerged to squelch it
I won't say I'm a loner, but I stand on my own, I'm not into groups
or "sides." Any effort on my part is on a voluntary basis.
I want to stay away from argument, but often it does seem as though you
pick up a piece/fragment of information and expand it into a conclusion,
an invalid one, but I likely do the same thing from time to time? As for
DuPont, your conclusion on the appeals court is questionable.
As for implicating my business, it is well known that agencies and others
chose the site for investigative work related to a disaster affecting
many sites. This was due to a willigness to cooperate, a quest for
answers and solutions, and the research work we had already conducted.
The end result, as it may apply here, is the experience and knowledge
that comes through interatcion with multiple agencies, scientisis,
laboratories, universities, corporations, and so on.
