[ilds] The Folio Justine

Hi all -

I have read the letter Richard Pine refers to.  It has been available on the internet since yesterday.  I do not think that the TLS has perversely chosen to publish a long and 'heavy-handed' letter when there was an equally worthy and even shorter alternative from Richard Pine.  The TLS prints the best, and I think this letter is very interesting and very good.  Here is the link:

The TLS inform me that they are printing a lengthy and (dare I say it?)
heavy-handed letter from Michael Haag in reply to Peter Porter's intro to
the AQ, so that my much shorter letter has been withheld.
