From: Chris Colby To: All Msg #136, Oct-06-93 02:05PM Subject: Forrest Mims -- here's a dime, buy a clue Organization: animal -- coelomate -- deuterostome From: colby@bu.bu.edu (Chris Colby) Message-ID: <28vffp$s1q@news.bu.edu> Followup-To: talk.origins Newsgroups: sci.skeptic,talk.origins Is Mr. Mims aware that freedom of the press in the US allows editors to set _whatever_ editorial policy they chose? This means SA had every right to fire (or not hire, or not buy articles from) Mims because he expressed views counter to their editorial stance. The same would happen if Gould, Dawkins or Diamond submitted an article to an ICR publication. The only difference would be they would likely be able to grasp this exceedingly trivial legal point and not be such a stinkin' whiner about it. Forrest, buddy, suck it up and go invent some more gizmos or something. Chris Colby email: colby@biology.bu.edu
