Hi Dick,

Look, I didn’t write to this list to get into a debate about the reality of the 
symptoms I and others experience in the presence of electro-magnetic fields, 
nor to get into a debate about “risk.” My intention in sharing what I did  was 
simply to include enough context to help others understand my specific 
questions, and then I offered some links in response to a specific question you 
posed. In your response below, you make some inaccurate assumptions about my 
situation and the way I’m thinking about it that I’m not comfortable with. I’d 
like to ask that we table this dicussion please.  Thank you.
