maynardshort 1 year ago on Jeff Peters: A shift to the right?

Jeff, I answered your letter to editor on Sunday the 30th. They were to publish on Wed, however Scott Stanford pulled the plug today, and stopped my letter from being published. So, I reproduce it here for you and your fan base.

On Friday the 28th, Jeff Peters sent in a comment on my "Letter to the Editor" that was published on Wed. the 26th with regard to my commenting on the excessive reprinting of the New York Times Columnists.

For some weird reason everyone immediately defends the writings of Paul Krugman by citing his Nobel Prize in Economics of 2008. As History has often shown, the past accolades of someone does not meaningfully measure the mettle of the man. Note the example of Yasar Arafat, Barack Hussein Obama and Al Gore, as Nobel Peace Prize recipients.

Mr. Peters completely missed the essence of my comments and instead went postal with his hate of Ann Coulter. It appears that he has the complete collections of Ann's writings at hand, or he went to the expense of a LEXIS-NEXIS search. Five citations of "out of context" statements by Ann Coulter seems an over reaction. For missing the essence of my letter and further for outing me as a Closet Fox News Junkie, which I thought I had hidden from the public eye, I challenge Mr. Peters to a duel. Some Pre-Dawn foggy morning on the banks of the Catamount, we should pace off 10 meters, turn and start throwing barbs at each other. Mr. Peters can attack with one-liners from Krugman and Dowd and I will counter with Coulter and Malken. After a pre-set period of time, the new and unbiased Editor Lisa Schlichtman will judge the winner. Maynard Short

Joanne, your articles are usually Petty and Pretty. When you become self righteous you come up wanting. I can see why Brent Boyer put you on the front page. He has had a complete negative view of Ann Coulter for yrs. At one time he hid it, but now he won't publish her at all. I read Ann Coulters response and it was well stated and accurate. She does not need to recall it or apologize for it. The common usage of retard explanation that she offers is acceptable usage today. Your push to eliminate the word from the language is ludicrous. Orwell would like it. Big brother would stop the thought crimes and doublethink of people that don't agree with you. Perhaps you and Boyer could reinstate the Ministry of Truth for the Today paper.

George, Is this the same Peer Review group that corrupted the science of climate change in the IPPC? The Hockey Stick fiasco by the IPPC and psuedo scientists Mann, Bradley and Hughes has set back the peer review process for decades. The corruption of science over the hockey stick is the most offensive scandal the scientific world has seen for several hundred years. It took the perserverance of a Canadian, Steve McIntyre ten yrs of bulldoging the IPPC and the coverup, before the truth came out about the changing of the data, the hiding of the data, and the creation of false data when none was there. No Goerge, the peer review process has been seriously tainted in the field of Climate Science. I no longer trust it and neither should you. Maynard

George D, please send your colleague a copy of Ian Plimers book, "Heaven and Earth", so he can admit how wrong he is. No sense allowing him to wallow in his ignorance. Maynard

For those of you who are not hung up on Al Gore's, "An Inconvenient Truth", or Rachel Carson's, "Silent Spring", and would like an intelligent treatise on what this is all about, I recommend, "Heaven and Earth", by Ian Plimer. Sub titled, "Global Warming and the Missing Science", 2009. Ian Plimer is professsor in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Adelaide, Aust. A quote from his book, on the back cover: "We live in a time when the methodology of science is suspended. Reactions to himan-induced global warming based on incomplete science can only be extraordinarily costly, will distort energy policy, and will make the poor poorer...In the case of the effect of CO2 on climate, the correct solution to the non-problem of CO2 is to have the courage to thoughtfully do nothing."
