Scientific views

Jim LeJeune, in a Jan. 26 letter, attempts to dismiss Jack Kelly’s opinions in his Jan. 12 column “Ship of Fools: They Got Trapped in the Antarctic in Search of a Mirage.” As is so often the case, not one single fact or source is cited in the letter.

It seems that Mr. LeJeune relies on “riffling through” science periodicals at the newsstand or library. I think that thoroughly reading the articles might produce a better understanding. Then again, if those periodicals have taken the same “principled” stance as the LA Times, they aren’t publishing any articles that present a different viewpoint. That seems to be what the writer prefers.

I’m not sure which of his viewpoints is more disturbing — his concern that “average” readers may believe that they have approval to discuss the controversy or his hope that the Post-Gazette also will stop publishing differing viewpoints.
