You have every right to speak your mind in this free country. But it is
discourteus and immoral to excercise your rights in this manner. I will be
relieved when the rudeness is gone. If you wish a scientific dialogue, then
the professor should be given the honor of referring to him as professor, or
at least his name of Chip, not as the dimunuative of 'Doc'.

Thanks John--

Funny, but I never felt comfortable with 'Doc'; reminds me of that kid in
'Journey to the Beginning of Time'. Now you know how old I am:-)
