Dr. Martin,

Thnak you for quoting me on the “knee deep in bodies by mid october” remark.

I appreciate your viewpoint and find it valuable in working through the issues associated with avian influenza vector research.

However, I feel that you have spent a lot of emotion and time attacking Dr. Niman. GET A LIFE. Niman is Niman. I realize that. He simply is who he is. Attacking him is a waste of your time. The truth of this research is the goal – not personal issues and egos – yours or his.
