don't waste the paper complaining, they try to show so good evidence

A good point. Complicated by the premise that the "researcher" is supposedly
attempting to attract funds for research and development for his new
technology and feels he is being shut out by "vested interests".

It's hard for me to sort out. When I was but a young lad...out on the dusty
plains of West Texas...I KNEW...I was absolutely convinced...that Rockets,
Computers,Ray Guns, etc. etc. were in the near future. Now...many years
later...all my expectations have been realized (in a manner of
speaking)...Yet at the time all of my aquaintances and elders were skeptical
in the extreme (Bible Belt Mentality)...

They were wrong then....are they wrong now?

As an aside. Please evaluate Dr. Eugene Mallow's "Cold Fusion"
I've mentioned...I've surfed their some of their
magazines...and they appear no more difficult to beleive than Penrose, Von
Neuman, Hawkings or Al Gore.
