Hi everyone!

Glad that people other than children have entered the "round crater"
discussion. My one problem comes from a side comment of Stodolsky,
to the effect that it takes 20 years of physics to keep up with 
current activities. My own background is in mathematics, not physics,
and I can follow most of it, well enough to see what they're doing...
direct from physics journals. If such fields really did require
20 years of physics to understand, no wonder the funding of physics
is in such problems!!! The number of people with 20 years of physics
able to vote for and provide personal money for experiments in 
physics looks like a very small % of the population. Any vote on
this issue would be easily lost. Any funding by the people themselves
might just be enough to build one of the smaller cyclotrons :).

		Best wishes and long long life for all,

			Thomas Donaldson
