Subject: C.K. Raju's yesterday's posting

I find this incredible. I take personally his final slur, "... This is
just another instance of how singularly and persistently unreliable
"authoritative" histories of science have been" ; and I give notice that I
will calmly and ruthlessly crush his any and every attempt to apply this to
me. I am well known for going straight for the jugular when roused.

One other thing. Much as those in the team studying Newton's papers at
Imperial College present the impression to the outside world, the world of
study of his scientific contribution through his surviving papers does not
revolve round it exclusively.

For your own good, C. K. Raju, get real. Tom Whiteside
