Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a
nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a
"Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed
considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense
initiatives more successful? Can such an application of
science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable,
necessary or impossible?

ultimately TRUTH outs : TRUTH has
to be morally forcing : build on TRUTH it's a strong
'Start speading the news .... I'm leaving today ... "
It's been a pleasure, a joy, and an education working on
this board with it's cast of characters including Alex,
Gisterme, Jorian, Margaret Drabble, Cantabb, Paul.J.F.,
Cooper, Broadsheets and media of the world, and 'The Poster'
incarnate in multiple monikers ... but always 'The Poster'.
MD is in many ways a MINDSET .... tried to warm up the
jello, melt away those little town views, and re-set some
thinking along the way.
I made the point to Gisterme that once local regions were
locked in wars. The Westphalia 1648 agreement gave respect to
National Boundaries a paradigm shift in it's time. There is a
need for Quality Standards to apply to those within boundaries
... giving assistance and necessary economic and political
help to those repressed in non-functional systems.
Those who hold the strings of power have to consider more
carefully how they can make the world a better, more caring,
considerate, interconnected and safer place. How to be
caringly-greedy rather than visciously so. There's a need to
learn how best to move through knowledge to wisdom; how to
make science and technology work in meaningful ways, knowing
that the measure of the world and the values of the world lie
with each individual who has value beyond the monetary.
I clicked in to the NYT through the advocacy of Phillip
Adams, Radio National ABC Australia, whose bio lists NYT, and
discovered the threads ... an interest in the memory with
respect to the linguistic led me to the NYT science thread on
the Brain ... through that board . and no doubt spotting the
World Asset that I am, - as are we all, Robert Showalter asked
me to partner him.
It has since been an honour and a privilege to work
along-side him - one of America's finest and most gifted
intellectuals - one of the greatest minds I've never met ...
'king of the hill - top of the heap'. The late Professor Steve
Kline partnered Bob for twenty five years recognising and
advocating the importance of his agenda - the ramifications of
which will as further developed, accepted and integrated be a
plus for humanity.
Showalter trust you have a copy of the thread - there's
more to MD than merely MD - post me.
Showalter's 'gonna make a brand new start of it ... If he
could make it here, he'll make it anywhere ... (with no
appologies to Frankie) ... It's up to you - New York, New York
I did go on to try the Home Brand Tuna advocated by Dame
Elizabeth Murdoch ... it was fine :)

This forum is for poetry only. Please move
any discussion of nuclear weapons to the Missile Defense
forum in the Science area. It could use the help!
Have a good Sunday, Kate
Looks like the same NYT official (kate_nyt) had stopped you
from abusing another forum 3 years ago. A behavioral pattern
with you ?
Must have been deja vu for kate ! But in any case, I don't
know why it took NYT this long ! Better late than never, I
In any case, NOT a surprise to you, since you had been
expecting such a decision, from the first day or at least in
the past few weeks.
But to me, it was a surprise -- particularly, since NYT
hadn't bothered to respond to various poster complaints about
the forum abuse !
