Like many other readers I wish to acknowledge the kindness and honesty of others living in our community. While fly fishing recently I met another angler (John) who found and returned an expensive, full fly box that I had lost the day before.

In response to the Baptiste/Allen letter of April 16, I must say you two need to join the real world. Do you really think you know more about the way science is properly done than Feynman, Dyson, Lindzen, Singer, Seitz, Happer, Teller, Mullis, Gelernter, Christy, Spencer, and on and on?

I ran 755 consecutive days, covering some 2,022 miles. I was one of three official Wyoming members of the U.S. Running Streak Association. Alas, a year ago I had to let it go. I ended my running streak due to knee surgery. During physical therapy I was told that riding a bike was fine, thoug…
