  1. Grant, Approximately a week ago you posted a note in response to a Spin of the Day on Greg Bourne, WWF and its nuclear policy (see You also posted comments on the Greg Bourne Talk page in SourceWatch

    A few days later I posted some notes responding to your points and asking for clarification on a number of points. So far there has been no response but I look forward to hearing from you.
