My thought exactly, I would be happy to do the study if somebody would
compensate me for my time. The problem becomes why would a group with an
advocacy position pay me? Dennis claimed earlier that in the pursuit of
truth the free market works best, but if my proposed study supported gun
control I doubt that NRA would publish it (oh yeah, like: Sorry folks we
were just wrong all these years, we are closing our offices effective
immeadiately and all working for the re-election of the Pres.) nor
would they hire me again. Likewise on the left I'm sure.
The free market is a wonderful thing, but historically the only
truth it reveals is subjective. Even in the advocacy positions of
lawyers in a criminal case they are required to reveal all the physical
evidence. Which reminds me whatever happen to the infamous envelope at

PS: Robert, if there is any justice in the world the Dodgers and/or the
Angels will make the World Series, so people in LA will have something to
do when the rest of us are watching football.
