Dear Dr. Rienstra,
Thank you. I am vindicated. Your current newsletter covers several subjects that I've done a bit of research about and made the same conclusions that you offer. I always look critically at the subject, seek out different opinions, do the research, ask a lot of questions and arrive at my own conclusions. "Follow the money" is always a good path to take and usually that explains everything. As I discuss these issues with others I discover that they don't take the time to think, and that drives me cRaZy! I know you can't cure stupid, but please, how can we encourage curiosity and critical thinking?
Thanks so much for all your good work, and for taking good care of us.Seb
