You're correct: I apologize. I went back to the passage of Gale's that
I thought would prove you mistaken, but see now that I misread it. I had
said that science can be hard-nosed. I misread his reply...

calling one scientist naive, soft, and gullible. (On the basis of my
supposed support for the notion of cold fusion, which was a baseless
charge on Gale's part; I've never mentioned the subject.)

Nothing in my previous posts warrants this insulting postscript, Bill.
