    Missile Defense

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?

I promised to try to sort the problem out - and on this thread I've done my best to do so. I think I've made some headway, too. I'd love a situation where everybody involved could have their needs served - and could be proud of solutions that were useful

You mean to Ike-Casey ? No substantiation of that either.

If we're going to have a fight - it is set up to be an interesting fight.

Who’s stopping you.

These are interesting, valid questions:

YOU may find them “interesting” for your own purpose, but that doesn’t make them “valid.” You are in NO position to demand an answer to these juvenile questions.

I notice you didn’t include lchic in this group ! What’s her [lchic's] employment affiliation, and whast's her real interest here ?

Cantabb , are you a legitimate representative of The New York Times - and do responsible NYT officers know who you are - and approve of your postings? Yes or no ?

Asked and answered before ! What’s it in my answer you don’t still understand ?

Ask NYT, if you're that obsessed !

Any of these answers - clearly set out - in writing - from a responsible member of the "control group" of the New York Times Company - would clarify a good deal that matters to me as a human being who has to live with administrative usages……..But with stable answers at most nodes that matter. And rules for the oscillations at most oscillating nodes. Though some statistical oscillation is tolerable, and can even be useful.

Just your obsessive ramblings !

For that demonstration, I need to meet a member of the NYT organization - face to face - and work a little while. Preferably, for grammatical reasons, somebody female. Morgenson, for example. Any chaperoning anybody wants would be OK by me - but I'd want the logical-grammatical skills women have at avoiding fights. Because I'm trying to avoid fights. Including big ones.

Pursue with NYT !

But also I need to be able to function. And it happens I know a lot about what I need.

Nobody seems to be preventing you from “functioning” - except perhaps yourself !

Posting on THIS NYT and other threads is NOT “functioning” ? You mentioned it was your ‘full-time’ effort., work on your “corpus.”

rshow55 - 01:58pm Nov 7, 2003 EST (# 16764 of 16764)

An hour meeting might be enough. A day would be better - and should certainly be enough. With great luck , it could be done with a phone call - but I don't feel so lucky. If I am put into a situation where I don't think I can function then I will decide to fight. That seems fair to me - and it is my decision to make. I'd rather avoid conflict, for obvious reasons.

Ask NYT ! If you didn’t understand their letter or decision conveyed by kate-nyt !

Sulzberger's secretary would be a good person to meet with, too. Not to make a decision - but to work out something that would fit Sulzberger's needs - she'd know a great deal about how to please him.

What do you think Sulzberger "needs" from you ?

And why do you even say this: "she'd know a great deal about how to please him."

That's something I'd like to do, too - if I could meet my own needs as well.

What YOU would "like to do" is NOT what others [at NYT] want to do, it seems !

rshow55 - 02:59pm Nov 7, 2003 EST (# 16769 of 16775)
Can we do a better job of finding truth? YES. Click "rshow55" for some things Lchic and I have done and worked for on this thread.

What do you think Sulzberger "needs" from you ?

If you don't work for the New York Times - he needs to be notified !
