So far so good, but then Charles goes on to say:

This sort of blatant hypocracy is laughable.  Obviously, Charles has made 
up his mind and *really* doesn't want to be bothered with any facts (as 

Charles is correct about Michael Riskin's high degree of objectivity and 
credibility.  Dr. Riskin's judgment in this matter will be good enough for 
me.  I understand that Dr. Ralph Merkle and Dr. Michael Perry were at the 
meeting as well and I would respect their judgment also.

Ever forward,
