Previously (Post Feb. 26 - Mar. 11) I referred to "excessive emotion, ignorance
or just plain vindictiveness" as generally being associated with anti-pesticide
attacks. I suppose I should thank Mr. Noel Rajesh (Post Apr. 23 - May 6) for proving
I feel no need to respond to his spurious statements. Thirty years working with farmers
in Asia has taught me to be tolerant of many things, including extremists.
Suffice it to say, the Cambodian farmer has the right to choose the most appropriate
technology to suit his needs. I certainly cannot judge what should be denied him,
nor I think can Mr. Rajesh.
